 Roy Sugarman reviews The Birth of Pleasure: A New Map of Love by Carol Gilligan
Faludi, in her last work, “Stiffed” spoke for male voices that couldn’t be heard, there is no ‘Masculinist’ movement, there is no vehicle for the male voice in patriarchy, for years thought to stifle female development in the service of a male-value dominated world.
In this work, Gilligan traces the human voice as life in a world dominated by patriarchal values stifles it in a form of dissociation, robbing girls of their voice.
The symptoms of this loss of ‘voice’ are similar to dissociation, living life ‘as if’, a feeling of alienation, from which only the sensation of pleasure allows for associative relationship with ourselves, a reuniting of cognition and emotions.
