Sacrificed lives : Kristeva on women and violence by Martha Jane Reineke( )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why did medieval women mystics starve themselves? What caused the European witch hunts, and why were its victims tortured and killed? Why has the Christian West regularly found maternal figures threatening? To answer these questions, Martha Reineke advances a theory of sacrifice, inspired by Julia Kristeva and Rene Girard, that attempts to account for violence in Western culture, the human proclivity for bodily mutilation and abuse, and women's special vulnerability to violence. A challenging and controversial book, Sacrificed Lives constructs an important bridge between "esoteric," postmodern theory and "ordinary" human life, as it furthers a vital philosophical debate on the question of violence
Intimate domain : desire, trauma, and mimetic theory by Martha Jane Reineke( )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the relational dynamics (maternal, sibling, and paternal) in three narratives, Proust's In search of lost time, Sophocles's Antigone, and Kristeva's The old man and the wolves, to amplify René Girard's mimetic hypothesis with the resources of psychoanalysis
Ana-María Rizzuto and the psychoanalysis of religion : the road to the living God by Martha Jane Reineke( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ana-María Rizzuto's groundbreaking explorations of the formation of God representations in early childhood and their elaboration throughout the life cycle have made their mark, enriching the practice of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, as well as scholarship within the psychoanalytic study of religion. Accompanied by illuminating commentaries by Rizzuto, the authors of this edited collection underscore Rizzuto's most important contribution to clinical practice: rather than assert that psychoanalysis is incompatible with religious beliefs and practices or with spiritual concerns that patients may bring to a therapeutic context, Rizzuto makes room for the coexistence of psychoanalysis and religion in the therapeutic setting. Demonstrating how Rizzuto's work has enhanced connections within and among psychoanalytic theories of religion, established pathways for new developments in psychotherapy, and facilitated interdisciplinary conversations, this volume showcases the compelling power of Rizzuto's work and its ongoing influence. -- from back cover

"As the millennium comes to a close, feminist scholars and other researchers in the social sciences and the humanities have been faced with challenging contradictions about methods used to understand the truth of women's lives.

Reineke, professor of religion, poses a new model for inquiry which many will find engaging."--Container
