What does it mean to be a woman? What is the pathway to mature femininity? And what about the masculine components of a woman's personality? Robert A. Johnson explores these questions in the new edition of She, updated to reflect the growth of his thinking on these subjects.
Many writers and scholars have long considered that the ancient myth of Amor and Psyche is really the story of a woman's task of becoming whole, complete, and individuated. Here, examining this ancient story in depth and lighting up the details, Robert A. Johnson has produced an arresting and perceptive exploration of what it means to become a woman. You will not read these pages wihtout understanding the important women in your life and a good deal more about yourself as a woman.
