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.
