In marked contrast to June Singer in Seeing Through the Visible World (LJ 7/90), Goldenberg rejects depth psychology, Jung's archetypes, and the whole notion of a transcendent realm. Beliefs in God, mind-body duality, archetypes, says Goldenberg, deny human responsibility and agency. Drawing on the work of Freud, Klein, and Winnicott, she affirms that all psychical phenomena derive from the body. Like Nancy J. Chodorow ( Femi nism and Psychoanalytic Theory, LJ 10/89), she sees a close connection among object relations, psychoanalytic theory, and feminist theory. Placing the source of mind/psyche in the body rather than in a transcendent realm means taking immanence seriously. Rejecting mind-body duality demands a rethinking of all categories of Western thought. For academic libraries and public libraries with feminist readers.
