Lombardi, Karen L.
Race, Gender & Class, v9 n4 p134-46 2002
Asserts that racism, classism, and sexism are fostered not only through material conditions but also through the privileging of difference common to Western intellectual thought. Turns to the unconscious of psychoanalytic theory, especially the theories of Melanie Klein and Ignacio Matter Blanco, recommending an alternative discourse on race, gender, and class within psychology. Illustrative examples are provided. (SM)
