John J. Hartman

The author presents an account of anthropologist Fitz John Porter Poole's observations of the Bimin-Kuskusmin people of New Guinea. This group believes that there is a conflict between male and female forces in the mind and body of each individual. These views are compared with Freud's ideas about inherent bisexuality. The observations form the basis of discussion in a colloquium between psychoanalysts and anthropologists devoted to Poole's account.
