EFTHIMIADIS-KEITH, Helen. Genesis 2:18-25 from a Jungian and feminist-deconstructionist point of view. Old testam. essays [online]. 2010, vol.23, n.1, pp.44-65. ISSN 2312-3621.
While there is nothing particularly special about Genesis 2:18-25 as affects language usage and variants that could significantly impact upon its translation, it has become one of the most contentious biblical passages for feminist interpretations of the biblical text. This article investigates Genesis 2:18-25 primarily from the perspective of Jungian individuation theory. It then merges the results of this analysis with the gains made by feminist interpretations of this passage in order further to deconstruct its androcentric application.
