LILITH: CULTURE and DIVERSITY - fear of the feminine - Edna Shahaf
Validity & Location
Masculine spirit, and its capacity to order and rule, has been the highest value: "the devaluation of the feminine is to be understood as an attempt at overcoming the fear of the feminine and its dangerous aspect as the Great Mother and as anima"... (Neumann, The Fear of the Feminine", Princeton 1994). The Figure of Lilth tells the story of what happened to the devalued Feminine in its exile: of its suffering, its rage and its come back, with all the terrible consequences associated with it.
Eric Neumann has famously written about the "fear of the feminine"' But "fear of" is not something usually associated with the feminine, which has been and still is regarded as inferior and lacking authority in most cultures.
The Speaker will aim to reflect on the significance of the figure of Lilith and the "fear of the feminine" with regards to both current collective trends and patients in their clinical analytical practice.
