Overview

That Obscure Subject of Desire: Freud's Female Homosexual Revisited by Ronnie Lesser

An interdisciplinary collection of papers on Freud's sixth and final case psychogenesis of a case of homosexuality in a woman. To date this case has received very little attention, which can be seen as a sign of the marginalization of lesbians in both psychoanalytic theory and culture. This text seeks to rectify this neglect, providing a forum where questions surrounding this case can be discussed.

This edition first published in 1999. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
