    In response to the 40-year anniversary of the publication of Juliet Mitchell’s Psychoanalysis and Feminism I trace the impact of this work on my thinking about sexual difference at four tender points over the course of my career. Through the addition of the conjunction ‘and’, and an ellipsis to the title Psychoanalysis and Feminism, I chart a cascade of questions and debates to which Mitchell’s original thesis has given rise. I figure Psychoanalysis and Feminism as itself a helpful symptom in feminist and queer debates about the development and transmission of sexual difference in psychic life.
