Summary
  • With the publication of In a Different Voice, Carol Gilligan made the altogether obvious but nonetheless controversial claim that a psychology of male development could not suffice as a psychology of human development. Since the publication of that revolutionary book, Gilligan has been recognized as a pioneer of feminist thought, but often vilified as an essentialist and a proponent of difference. A quarter of a century later, with the publication of The Birth of Pleasure, Gilligan offered an interpretation of human psychology, arguing through field research, through literature, and through personal and political histories that the pleasure of love is a common human denominator and that inhibiting pleasure is a price that men and women pay equally for socialization in a hierarchical culture. --
  • In Enacting Pleasure, a distinguished group artists and scholars explore the personal and political implications of Gilligan's account of pleasure and the human psyche. Some find the work Eurocentric. Some see it as a blueprint for progressive politics. Some find it heterocentric. Some see it as a path to sexual liberation. Some find it Freudian. Some find it anti-Freudian. Others find it prescient of the most advanced thinking in neuroscience and human biology. The collection stands as a meditation on the role that love plays, in psychological health, in art, and in democratic politics. --
