Description du livre Paperback. Etat : New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Christopher Lasch has examined the role of women and the family in Western society throughout his career as a writer, thinker, and historian. In Women and the Common Life, Lasch suggests controversial linkages between the history of women and the course of European and American history more generally. He sees fundamental changes in intimacy, domestic ideals, and sexual politics taking place as a result of industrialization and the triumph of the market. Questioning a static image of patriarchy, Women and the Common Life insists on a feminist vision rooted in the best possibilities of a democratic common life. In her introduction to the work, Elisabeth Lasch-Quinn offers an original interpretation of the interconnections between these provocative writings. N° de réf. du vendeur AAV9780393316971

Description du livre Paper Back. Etat : New. The surrendering of parental responsibility to an evanescent culture esults in a detachment from a sense of history and place, creating a narcissism possessing no solid boundaries of self. Women and the Common Life places marriage, love and feminism in this same context. The narcissistic self denies a material world where gratification and suffering co-exist and thus attempts to transcend the physical (witness the gnostic new-age movement) or overpower it (seen in our reliance on technology). Both outlooks reject community and reinterpret sacrifice in love or work as victimhood. As such, social movements such as feminism ''prey upon resentment'' in lieu of acknowledging and dealing with the essential narcissism that underlies the motives of both men and women.
