Homophobia and the Politics of Objectivism: Commentary on Rosenbaum's (1995) “Comment”

Ronnie C. Lesser, Ph.D.

Rosenbaum (1995) argued that the 1992 and 1993 volumes of Psychoanalytic Psychology detracted from the image of psychologists as being within science because they included articles about homophobia in psychoanalytic theory and practice.
