Today´s way of life is based on power, control, and the constant battle perpetuated between women and men. The patriarchy, although primarily engineered and executed by men, dishonors men and the positive masculine as much as it dishonors women and the positive feminine. Sam Keen takes you on a journey to discover new routes to authentic manhood and create alternatives to definitions of masculinity that no longer work in today´s world. 1. Language: English.

Why has gender inequality persisted for so long without revolutionary change? That´s the central question Joan Wallach Scott poses in her 1998 collection of essays, Gender and the Politics of History. Scott notes that obvious economic, social, and class inequalities have produced large-scale social change, but uncovering the reality of gender inequality has not done the same. Analyzing the ways in which language controls and shapes our understanding of experience, Scott argues that gender has already played a role in many social changes, but historians have lacked the theory needed to identify and describe that role. Scott insists that gender is not incidental to politics, social structures, or economics but is actually the main way to construct difference and hierarchies in society. Scott´s controversial work has had a lasting impact, both in academia and in the larger world. Why? Because she popularized the practice of examining how our thoughts and discussions about gender shape everyday life and political developments. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Macat.com.

Contradictory and provocative pathways crisscross the terrain of gender among contemporary psychologists and psychoanalysts. Clearing a path through this terrain, Polly Young-Eisendrath describes and illustrates issues of gender and desire among women and men.Young-Eisendrath introduces three world views: premodern, modern, and postmodern. Then, she calls our attention to how we shape reality and clearly explains how a lived postmodern philosophy is essential for us to understand ourselves and how we can change.Next, she discusses gender and sex differences in terms of how the former are flexible and the latter are not. The division of the human community into the two exclusive groups of male and female has important psychological implications on both conscious and unconscious levels. Most depth psychological theories of gender and sex have been androcentric, taking males as the norm for health, and have failed to develop a full understanding of desire, opposition, and idealization between the sexes.One major theme in a depth psychology of gender is that of Woman as the object of desire. The Greek myth of Pandora deftly illustrates the problem of female beauty: as the ´´desire-awakening maiden´´ Pandora is powerful but empty. The link between female beauty, power, and evil teaches us about the consequences of female appearance as a commodity to be used among men. Zeus placed the curse of Pandora on humankind, as a punishment for the theft of fire from the gods, and we are still living with the effects of this patriarchal curse. The double bind of female beauty (damned if you engage it and damned if you don´t) must be lifted from the male-female relationships in this time of growing equality and reciprocity between the sexes.For women and men to reach their full potential of development as individuals and in relationships, they must break Pandora´s curse and free themselves from the myth of the power of female beauty.In w... 1.

It´s surprising that the term ´´heterosexuality´´ is less than 150 years old and that heterosexuality´s history has never before been written, given how obsessed we are with it. In Straight, independent scholar Hanne Blank delves deep into the contemporary psyche as well as the historical record to chronicle the realm of heterosexual relations - a subject that is anything but straight and narrow. Consider how Catholic monasticism, the reading of novels, the abolition of slavery, leisure time, divorce, and constipation of the bowels have all at some time been labeled enemies of the heterosexual state. With an extensive historical scope and plenty of juicy details and examples, Straight provides a fascinating look at the vagaries, schisms, and contradictions of what has so often been perceived as an irreducible fact of nature. 1.
