Psychoanalysis has traditionally viewed women as objects of desire. Rethinking the Relation between Women and Psychoanalysis uses a contemporary psychoanalytic view to resituate women's place in the narrative as desiring subjects. Contributors to this collection raise questions about the status of woman in culture and society and contend with the theme of loss and mourning that has been associated with women since the beginning of psychoanalysis. The various configurations of mourning, pain, regret, and grieving in diverse societies and cultures are explored in order to reconstruct the role of women in modern psychoanalysis.
