Sutton, Kate. Sex between Body and Mind: Psychoanalysis and Sexology in the German Speaking World, 1890s-1930s

Ideas about human sexuality and sexual development changed dramatically across the first half of the 20th century. This is the first book to closely examine vital encounters among this era’s German-speaking researchers across their emerging professional and disciplinary boundaries. Sutton charts how the emergence of two separate approaches to the study of sex, sexology and psychoanalysis, were always part of a dialogic and competitive process.
