A Question of 3 Sets of Characteristics

Stuart Marshall

1979, 53:00 minutes, English


"Psychoanalysis has a common basis with biology, in that it presupposes an original bisexuality in human beings (as in animals). But psychoanalysis cannot elucidate the intrinsic nature of what in conventional or in biological phraseology is termed 'masculine' or 'feminine': it simply takes over the two concepts and makes them the foundation of its work. When we attempt to reduce them further, we find masculinity vanishing into activity and femininity into passivity and that does not tell us enough.'
-Sigmund Freud on 'A case of homosexuality in a woman'.
