  1. On the Lap of Necessity: A Mythic Reading of Teresa Brennan's Energetics Philosophy.Jane Caputi - 2001 - Hypatia 16 (2):1-26.
    : In several works Teresa Brennan examines how, contrary to social notions of the separate and contained self, all that exists in the natural world is connected energetically. She identifies a "foundational fantasy" whereby the ego comes into existence and is maintained by the notion that it controls the mother.

    Unthinkable Fathering: Connecting Incest and Nuclearism.Jane Caputi - 1994 - Hypatia 9 (2):102 - 122.
    The examination of cultural productions with nuclear themes reveals the regular recurrence of the theme of incestuous fatherhood. Connections include a nuclear-father figure, one who threatens dependents while purportedly protecting them; the desecration of the future; the betrayal of trust; insidious long-term effects after initial harm; the shattering of safety; the cult of secrecy, aided by psychological defenses of denial, numbing, and splitting (in both survivor and perpetrator); the violation of life-preservative taboos; and survival.
