Short biography
Teresa Brennan was born in Melbourne, Australia. She earned degrees from the University of Sydney, the University of Melbourne, and Cambridge University. She became a noted feminist philosopher and social-political theorist. Her first book was Interpretation of the Flesh: Freud and Femininity (1992), followed by History After Lacan (1993). In her last and best-known book, The Transmission of Affect (2004), she argued that the emotions and energies of one person or group can be absorbed by or can enter directly into another.
