Nissim-Sabat ultimately proposes that a new consciousness, enabled by the phenomenological attitude, of the way in which ideological distortion of the concepts of ‘victim’ and ‘survivor’ helps to perpetuate victimization will empower us to find ways to end victimization and its anti-human consequences. The book’s interdisciplinary approach will make it appealing to a broad range of students and scholars alike.
The slow, careful, and committed reader will be rewarded by thoughtful arguments that add to the debate and address very real and important issues in the care we give to others. (Metapsychology Online)
Neither Victim nor SurvivorÂ is useful particularly as an intervention into the discourse about the concepts of victim and survivor, and is of special interest to those who may share Nissim-Sabat’s passionate commitment to developing phenomenological psychoanalysis.
