About the Book

Perhaps the foremost issue in the emerging area of inquiry known as lesbian and gay studies is the social constructionist controversy. Social constructionism is the view that the categories of sexual orientation are cultural constructs rather than naturally universal categories.
Forms of Desire brings together important essays by social constructionists and their critics, representing several disciplines and approaches to this debate about the history and science of sexuality.


About the Author:

Edward Stein is Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Research Fellow in the College of Arts and Sciences at New York University. A specialist in the philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, and gay and lesbian studies, he is co-founder of the Boston area Gay and Lesbian Academic Study Seminar.
