In this pathbreaking book a leading contemporary thinker brings together psychoanalysis, anthropology, and gender analysis to create an original theory about the ways in which we look at ourselves. The "power of feelings" -- the individual subjective meaning we bring to our experiences -- are at least as important as their cultural and social meanings, claims Nancy J. Chodorow.
