Responsive Reading: Daly, Dialogue and Denunciation (Henking Responds to Steichen, Vitz & Vitz, and Hearn)
Abstract

In rebuttal to critique this discussion continues dialogue with Hearn (1993) and responds to Steichen (1993) and Vitz and Vitz (1993) in this issue. Hearn's inclusion of Daly's most recent publication provides an important addition to the discussion. It clarifies Daly's early works as revolutionary rather than merely reformatory in their context. Hearn also aptly labels Daly's tendency to reject psychologists yet use their works as ironic (rather than unreasonable). It is more difficult to dialogue with the other respondents. Although Daly is explicitly anti-male, that position need not be designated sexist in a partriarchal, misogynist world. Although Daly is angry, in a misogynist world why is her anger and fear paranoid? Although Daly's conceptualizations may not be unique, her material is worthy of attention as indicative of a cultural trend.
