In this feminist exploration of the erotics of undefined, Hegel's concept of estate and Lacan's suggestion of the phallus serve parallel capabilities in growing the subjectivity valuable for self-actualization. Subjectivity calls for intersubjective relationships mediated via a regime of owning, having fun with, and changing an item of wish. For Hegel, this regime is estate; for Lacan, it truly is sexuality, symbolized through the Phallus, which we conflate with the male organ and the feminine physique. estate legislations, in Jeanne Schroeder's account, is implicitly figured by way of comparable anatomical metaphors for that which males desire to own and that which ladies you should be and revel in. this is often mirrored in imagery taken from historical Rome—the awl and package of sticks referred to as the Fasces, and the virgin priestess known as the Vestal.

Schroeder strains the endurance of phallic metaphors in sleek jurisprudence. Rejecting the dominant colleges of criminal feminism, she reconceptualizes property—the criminal dating in addition to its now not inevitably fabric object—as an important second within the human fight for romance and popularity. the female, for Schroeder, is the novel negativity on the center of either Lacan's cut up topic and Hegel's notion of freedom. female emancipation and personal estate are, for that reason, both beneficial stipulations for the actualization of the loose person and the simply society. Feminist students, social theorists, political scientists, philosophers, and attorneys will locate in Schroeder's research scintillating new views on estate conception and the female in the marketplace and the law.
