Stekel holds that homosexuality is a psychic disease based on the fear of love, and as such is curable This 1922 book was an important work in the history of psychology and psychoanalysis showing how this science, while contributing to the growth of human understanding, also has blocked understanding and human growth. Stekel was a follower of Sigmund Freud, though Freud was not particularly enamored with him. In this general overview of bisexuality, the work exposes the authors differences with Bloch, Moll, Krafft-Ebing, Ellis, and Hirschfeld. The book is quite representative of 1930s thinking on sexuality.
