The Enigma of Desire: Sex, Longing and Belonging in Psychoanalysis

Atlas's book, The Enigma of Desire: Sex, Longing and Belonging in Psychoanalysis (Routledge, October 2015)[2] offers an illuminating, original construction of sexuality as located in the tension between what she has termed “Enigmatic” and “Pragmatic” dimensions, deftly putting into play the binaries of known and unknown, seen and unseen, internal and external as well as oedipal and pre-oedipal experiences of the body. The leading psychoanalyst and feminist Jessica Benjamin declared that Atlas "recaptures the realm of sexuality for relational psychoanalysis."
