9780231078689: All the Mothers Are One: Hindu India and the Cultural Reshaping of Psychoanalysis

Based on the author's ethnographic research in India, the book explores the psychology of Hinduism, and offers an innovative synthesis of psychoanylsis with modern anthropological theories of cultural difference. Stanley N. Kurtz offers a new interpretation of the multiple "mother goddesses" of Hinduism, and explores how this multiplicity is key to understanding early childhood experience in which a child is raised by many "mothers" in the Hindu joint family.

Arguing that traditional psychoanalytic approaches to Indian culture have applied Western models without regard to differing cultural circumstances, Kurtz suggests that immersion in a joint family plays a central role in the development of feelings and needs which are carried over into adult life. The book concludes with a briefr comparison of mothering in India and contemporary America. All the Mothers Are One makes a significant contribution to the growing debate concerning the role of psychoanalysis in the interpretation of culture and the study of cross-cultural human development.

Book Description :

Based on the author's ethnographic research in India, the book explores the psychology of Hinduism, and offers an innovative synthesis of psychoanylsis with modern anthropological theories of cultural difference.

From the Back Cover :

Hindu India and the Cultural Reshaping of Psychoanalysis: Stanley Kurtz's book is an imaginative, bold, tight argued attempt that qualifies as an innovative implementation of that program. He demonstrates that current psychoanalytic work on Hindu (and South Asian societies is still hobbled by a commitment to an underlying account of socializations beholden to the dominance of concepts of individualism.
