Heteronormativity and Psychoanalysis: Oedipus Gay - Jorge N. Reitter
Heteronormativity and Psychoanalysis proposes a critical reading of the Freudian and Lacanian texts that paved the way for a heteronormative bias in the theory and practice of psychoanalysis.
Jorge N. Reitter’s theoretical-political project engages in a genealogy of how psychoanalysis approached the ‘gay question’ through time. This book determinedly seeks to dismantle the heteronormative bias in the theories of psychoanalysis that resist new discourses on gender and sexuality.
Drawing on developments by Michel Foucault and lesbian and gay studies on queer theory and feminist theorizing, Reitter draws attention to the normalizing devices that permanently regulate sexuality neglected by psychoanalysis as producers of subjectivities.
