Lesbian Friendships: For Ourselves and Each Other (Cutting Edge)

Lesbian Friendships: For Ourselves and Each Other (Cutting Edge) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Friends as lovers; lovers as friends; ex-lovers as friends; ex-lovers as family; friends as family; communities of friends; lesbian community. These are just a few of the phrases heard often in the daily discourse of lesbian life. What significance do they have for lesbians? Do lesbians view friends as family and what does this analogy mean? What sorts of friendships exist between lesbians? What sorts of friendships do lesbians form with non-lesbian women, or with men?

These and other questions regarding the kinds of friendships lesbians imagine and experience have rarely been addressed. Lesbian Friendships focuses on actual accounts of friendships involving lesbians and examines a number of issues, including the transition from friends to lovers and/or lovers to friends, erotic attraction in friendship, diverse identities among lesbians, and friendships across sexuality and/or gender lines.

Synopsis:

Charging that may widely held opinions found in the body of modern Jewish philosophy are inadequate if not false, Katz attempts a reconstruction of these beliefs into a more compelling and tightly composed account of Jewish thought. The book addresses a number of particularly significant topics relating Jewry, with essyas on Martin Buber, Eliezer Berkovits, Richard Rubenstein, Emil Fackenheim, and Ignaz Maybaum.

A significant review of Jewish philosophical foundations by one of today's most dynamic and important scholars of Judaism.
