Private Practices: Harry Stack Sullivan, the Science of Homosexuality, and American Liberalism

By Naoko Wake

Private Practices examines the connection among technology, sexuality, gender, race, and tradition within the making of recent the US among 1920 and 1950, whilst contradictions between liberal intellectuals affected the increase of U.S. conservatism. Naoko Wake makes a speciality of neo-Freudian, homosexual psychiatrist Harry Stack Sullivan, founding father of the interpersonal conception of psychological ailment. She explores scientific and social scientists' conflicted method of homosexuality, quite the perspectives of scientists who themselves lived closeted lives.

Wake discovers that there has been a gap--often dramatic, often subtle--between those scientists' "public" figuring out of homosexuality (as a "disease") and their own, "private" notion (which puzzled any such stigmatizing view). This breach published a contemporary tradition within which self-awareness and open-mindedness turned qualities of "mature" gender and sexual identities. Scientists thought of contributors and societies missing those characteristics to be "immature," developing an unequal dating among practitioners and their topics. In assessing how those dynamics--the disparity among private and non-private perspectives of homosexuality and the asymmetric courting among scientists and their subjects--worked to form one another, deepest Practices highlights the bounds of the medical method of human subjectivity and illuminates its unusual career--sexual subjectivity in particular--in sleek U.S. culture.
