Revue Française de Psychanalyse. LVIII, 1994. Feminine Homosexuality in Plato. Nathalie Ernoult. Pp. 207-218.

Emmett Wilson, Jr., M.D.

The author cites several classical writers on the subject of homosexuality, noting that only Plato mentions feminine homosexuality specifically. First it appears in the Symposium as one of the three basic origins of human eroticism, and then Plato condemns it in the Laws. Even though Plato is the only Greek author to discuss it, his remarks are all abstract and do not focus on the actual phenomenon of female homosexuality as practiced in Greece. Without drawing any conclusions, Ernoult comments on this curious absence of considerations of feminine homosexuality in a cultural milieu in which so much discussion was devoted to male homosexual relationships.
