Impure Thoughts

Michael G. Cronin

This chapter discusses the emergence of psychoanalytic thought in the twentieth century and the historical development of the notion of sexuality. It examines the Freudian libidinal theory model, which re-conceptualised desire and stated that human subjectivity is produced by a struggle between opposing forces of sexual desire and sexual repression.

Keywords:   psychoanalytic thought, sexuality, Freudian libidinal theory, sexual desire, human subjectivity, sexual repression
