Hannah Arendt, for love of the world by Elisabeth Young-Bruehl( Book )

55 editions published between 1982 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 2,373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes Hannah Arendt's life in Germany up to 1933 and her emigration to Paris where she was active in the struggle against fascism and a member of the Ligue Internationale contre l'Antisemitisme, speaking at several conferences. She emigrated to the USA in 1941. Discusses her book "The Origins of Totalitarianism" (1951), which contains an important chapter on antisemitism, and "Eichmann in Jerusalem" (1961) on the Eichmann trial, which aroused violent criticism and led to accusations against her of Jewish self-hatred and anti-Zionism. Concludes that these accusations are not justified and result from a failure to understand her work
Why Arendt matters by Elisabeth Young-Bruehl( )

28 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 2,178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1951, publication of The Origins of Totalitarianism brought Hannah Arendt immediate recognition as a political thinker of the first order, and over the next quarter-century, she published numerous books that profoundly influenced the way America and Europe addressed the central questions and dilemmas of World War II. Yet for many, the significance of Arendt's work has been lost in the controversy surrounding a single phrase, "the banality of evil," that was used in her study Eichmann in Jerusalem. Here, Elisabeth Young-Bruehl illuminates Arendt's most influential work and places it in the context of crucial twenty-first-century issues such as war, terrorism, security, privacy, and what Kant called "radical evil.""--Jacket
Childism : confronting prejudice against children by Elisabeth Young-Bruehl( )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The anatomy of prejudices by Elisabeth Young-Bruehl( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and Japanese and held by 1,226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surveying the study of prejudice since World War II, Young-Bruehl finds a history riddled with assumptions, generalizations, and cliches. The Anatomy of Prejudices proposes a fresh start, and suggests an approach that distinguishes between different types of prejudices, the people who hold them, the social and political settings that promote them, and the human needs they fulfill. Young-Bruehl draws on theoretical and clinical, historical, and empirical literatures to show us prejudices from a variety of angles: there are those that help protect a group's identity (ethnocentrisms) and those that project a group identity (ideologies of desire); there are prejudices as socioeconomic phenomena, attitudes toward governments, products of historical periods, social mechanisms of defense, sexual fantasy structures, and puberty rites

Cherishment : a psychology of the heart by Elisabeth Young-Bruehl( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cher-ish-ment, n. F. cher, dear. Sweet, indulgent love, esp. of children. Emotional equivalent of nourishment soul food. What the world needs now. Elisabeth Young-Bruehl and Faith Bethelard give a name to the kind, warm, tender, and affectionate love that babies expect before they can speak of it and that we all desire our whole lives long. As adults, they note, we all desire our whole lives long. As adults, they note, we don't often acknowledge or even understand our need for this "cherishment." Their book is a rare effort to explore that need, to create a "psychology of the heart." In Cherishment, Young-Bruehl and Bethelard provide a wholly original way of thinking about familiar concepts such as love, attachment, and care, showing how deep-seated disappointments and fears of dependency keep so many of us from forming healthy relationships. Questioning the traditional, celebratory view of independence and self-reliance, they argue that cherishment is the emotional foundation, formed in childhood, that sustains all kinds of growth-promoting adult bonds. Blending the philosophical writing that has won Young-Bruehl international acclaim with Bethelard's imaginative sensibility, Cherishment is a finely balanced interplay of scholarship, dual-memoir, and intimate therapeutic tales. It draws on ancient wisdom traditions of the East and West, telling many instructive stories of men and women, young and old, who have learned to cultivate the cherishment instinct in themselves as well as in others. It helps readers attune sensitively to the ways people express their need for affection in the details of daily life and relationships. The book narrates a journey of discovery, and any reader on his or her own journey in the realm of the heart will feel cherished by it
Subject to biography : psychoanalysis, feminism, and writing women's lives by Elisabeth Young-Bruehl( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl illuminates the psychological and intellectual demands writing biography makes on the biographer and explores the complex and frequently conflicted relationship between feminism and psychoanalysis. She considers what remains valuable in Sigmund Freud's work, and what areas - theory of character, for instance - must be rethought to be useful for current psychoanalytic work, for feminist studies, and for social theory. Psychoanalytic theory used for biography, she argues, can yield insights for psychoanalysis itself, particularly in the understanding of creativity

"In these writings, many of them published for the first time in this volume, the author reconceptualizes psychoanalytical theory of instinctual drives and object relations.

These essays continue the investigation of love that she began with her previous coauthored book, Cherishment: A Psychology of the Heart."--Jacket
