Androgyny: The Opposites Within
Humanity has always been aware of the fundamental duality in the universe. Jungian analyst June Singer posits that this duality is a function of the eternal interplay of opposing psychic energies in every individual throughout history, sometimes appearing as a specifically sexual confusion or psychological disturbances generated by the absence of inner psychic wholeness. In Androgyny, Singer interprets the many aspects of human existence in light of the interaction of male and female principles in every individual, as well as the collective to which we belong. Androgyny is of vital interest to anyone concerned with the problem of gender and gender relations in comtemporary society.
