In Neither Victim nor Survivor: Thinking toward a New Humanity, Marilyn Nissim-Sabat offers a comprehensive critique of the interrelated concepts of "victim" and "survivor" as they have been ideologically distorted in Western thought. Nissim-Sabat proposes that a phenomenological attitude empowers us to overcome the anti-human consequences of both victimization of individuals and peoples and the ideological distortions of concepts that help to perpetuate that victimization.

MEDIA REVIEWS
With compassion and rigor, Marilyn Nissim-Sabat offers unprecedented insight into victim blaming. By intervening in postmodern philosophical trends and inaugurating a paradigm shift in psychoanalytic theory, she shows that even liberal theoreticians, clinicians, and activists confine the victims of history to mere survival and undermine the humanistic and transcendental ideal of human flourishing. This book is a must-read for philosophers, psychoanalysts and therapists, feminists and critical race theorists. -- Patricia Huntington, Arizona State University
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 Survivor 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. * Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy *
