Femininities, Masculinities, Sexualities: Freud and Beyond (The Blazer Lectures, 1990)

Can psychoanalysis move beyond a monolithic account of normal gender and sexuality to address questions of diversity and variability in gender development and gender identity? Can its practitioners and theorists render nonpathologizing accounts of variation in sexual orientation? In her first extended treatment of sexuality and love, Nancy Chodorow, author of The Reproduction of Mothering, and a preeminent feminist theorist, addresses these and other questions that continue to trouble feminists, gay and lesbian theorists, cultural and historical critics, and contemporary psychoanalysis.
