Book Description

This book introduces the Euripides' Medea fantasy as an unconscious determinant of psychogenic sterility, a fantasy that forms an unrecognized part of the self-representation. It is addressed to people who are interested in womanhood, its fortunes and misfortunes, creativity and destructiveness.
