Is Biology Destiny? A Defense? of Freud.
Bullough, Vern L.
Though Freud often is portrayed by advocates of women's liberation as the villain in the 'biology is destiny' controversy, Freud was very much a person of his own times. Rather than inventing the 'biology is destiny' theme, he was perpetuating a tradition that dates from at least the time of the Greeks, and which was deeply engrained in 19th century medicine. If this is the case the villain is not so much Freud, but the medical and psychological assumptions of the past. (Author)
