The newly born woman by Hélène Cixous( Book )

29 editions published between 1975 and 2008 in English and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published in France as La jeune née in 1975, and now translated for the first time into English, The Newly Born Woman seeks to uncover the veiled structures of language and society that have situated women in the position called "woman's place." Through their readings of historical, literary, and psychoanalytic accounts, Hélène Cixous and Catherine Clément explore what is hidden and repressed in culture, revealing the unconscious of history. Their work is set within the context of American feminism in Sandra M. Gilbert's introduction, and translator, Betsy Wing's glossary provides the special vocabulary necessary for English-language readers."--back cover
The lives and legends of Jacques Lacan by Catherine Clément( Book )

40 editions published between 1981 and 1993 in 4 languages and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Est-il possible d'écrire un "vrai" livre d'initiation à Lacan, quand il est généralement admis que celui qui ne l'a pas ##entendu parler## ne peut presque pas comprendre sa pensée ni ses textes? Il semble que Catherine Clément ait réussi dans cet essai pédagogique et hagiographique - sans être toujours conforme à l'orthodoxie lacanienne - à "arracher le texte lacanien à sa réputation d'illisibilité", à force de passion. Public concerné: étudiants et public cultivé, intéressés à la littérature, à la philosophie, à la psychanalyse. Une initiation qui reste complexe et suppose de larges lectures

The weary sons of Freud by Catherine Clément( Book )

27 editions published between 1978 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this passionately written and controversial book, first published in 1978, Catherine Clément, Communist, feminist and analysand, asks what the social function of psychoanalysis should be and condemns what it has become. She attacks psychoanalysis as an institution disdainful of treatment and cure, serving the interests of a new intelligentsia, the nouveaux riches of a narcissistic literary culture and publishing industry. Contrasting the insights of psychoanalytic theory to the obsessive imitations of Jacques Lacan by those who followed him as a practitioner-trainer, she offers an anthropological perspective and a political critique of Parisian psychoanalysis as a profession. How has the attentive ear of the analyst become deaf to questions about the social and political meaning of his or her work? Does a woman who is both a socialist and analysand necessarily hear such questions more clearly and answer them differently? Clément reflects on her own history, the history of psychoanalysis and the history of the French left to demonstrate what an activist and feminist restoration of psychoanalysis could be.", viewed June 29, 2015

Martin and Hannah : a novel by Catherine Clément( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Germany, 1975. Two women nearing the end of their lives come together at the bedside of an old man, having spent the last fifty years vying for first place in his heart. While he slumbers in the grip of nightmares, the two enemies sit in a nearby room and declare a truce. Who are the players in this awkward love triangle?" "One is the old man's wife, a woman who has played her role as the devoted mother and the obedient, bourgeois Hausfrau to the Great Man and tyrannical husband. The other is his former student and lover, nearly twenty years his junior; the Jewish intellectual consumed by her clearsightedness. Despite the seemingly unbridgeable gulf between them, they have sustained their passion for five decades. And he is the brilliant and famous philosopher, tormented by his Nazi past." "This fugue for three voices reveals the imprint of the century's greatest tragedy: for the three characters are internationally acclaimed philosopher Martin Heidegger; his wife, Elfriede; and famed social and political philosopher Hannah Arendt."--BOOK JACKET
