In this study, Geneviève Morel focuses on what analytic work with psychotic subjects can teach us about the different solutions human beings can construct to the questions of sexual identity. Through a careful exposition of Lacanian theory, Morel argues that classical gender theory is misguided in its notion of "gender identity: and that Lacan's concept of "sexuation" is more precise. Clinical case studies illustrate how sexuation occurs and the ambiguities that may surround it. In psychosis, these ambiguities are often central, and Morel explores how they may or may not be resolved thanks to the individual's own constructions. --Book Jacket.
