Interrogations scientifiques autour de l'homosexualité 

Il est couramment admis que l’orientation hétéro- ou homosexuelle d’un individu est essentiellement, voire exclusivement, le résultat d’apprentissages et d’interactions sociales qui se déroulent dans l. a. petite enfance. Sous l’influence de théories psychanalytiques freudiennes et postfreudiennes, un rôle tout particulier a été attribué aux interactions du petit enfant avec ses mom and dad dans le développement de l’homosexualité. Cette dernière serait alors le résultat d’un blocage du développement de los angeles libido à un stade immature. Ces reviews très répandues ne sont cependant pas soutenues par des études quantitatives contrôlées et ignorent une littérature scientifique abondante qui suggère fortement, voire démontre que l’homosexualité dépend largement de déterminants biologiques prénataux.

Vu los angeles complexité de los angeles personne humaine, ceci n’exclut pas qu’il puisse exister des homosexuels pour qui cette orientation constitue un choix de vie délibéré, éventuellement influencé par des expériences antérieures. Cependant, une huge percentage des homosexuels naissent avec cette orientation sexuelle qui se révèle à eux de façon innovative au cours du développement et n’est souvent acceptée qu’au prix d’une souffrance psychologique importante. Une compréhension de ces mécanismes biologiques devrait conduire à une acceptation plus huge de l’homosexualité dans los angeles inhabitants et réduire los angeles souffrance des personnes concernées.Ce livre a pour yet de rendre obtainable à un huge public los angeles littérature scientifique sur les bases biologiques de l’orientation sexuelle et donc de corriger les conceptions erronées très répandues au sujet des origines de l’homosexualité.

Un ouvrage de référence qui reprend les théories sociales, psychologiques et biologiques sur l'homosexualité.


- "En homme de technology, l’auteur s’adresse au lecteur dans un langage compréhensible. (...) Un hymne à l’acceptation. Un outil pour aider les homosexuels à s’assumer." (Eos, n°26, mai-juin 2010)

Example text

In other words, their functions may vary in accord with the discourse. Deixis is the place where the subject of the enunciation is inscribed in the statement, whereas the oath is the act by which the subject of the enunciation is inscribed in a discourse. The Hippocratic Oath consists of ten points. The first two refer to the transmission of the art of medicine, an act that should be carried out free of charge. The relationship between master and apprentice should be similar to that which exists between parents and children.

On the contrary, his complaint may well be expressed in relation to the narrative strategies through which his suffering can be formulated. His demand may also be a plea for the re-establishment of his effectiveness or excellence (Parker, 1999). According to Rieff (1990) compromise therapies base their method on the coercive strength of the symbolic system, which is able to re-unite the members of a community around a characteristic ideal. The feeling of well-being and health is defined by organic participation adjusted to the fate and origins of a community.

The true God is the one who fulfils his promises and the false believer is the one who fails to comply with the covenant (Hegenberg, 1975, p. 13). In this narrative, therefore, the truth points to the future and to the performative dimension of language: the oath, the promise, the bet. It has already been noted that the difficult passage from propositional logic or verifiable functional logic—based on types of judgements and, especially, apophantic judgements—to modal logic, based on the notions of necessity, possibility, impossibility, and contingency, derives from minor differences in the real function of truth in each case (Tugenhat & Wolf, 1997, p.
