of bisexuality (in the sense of double sex). Psychoanalytic 

investigation very strongly opposes the attempt to separate homosexuals 

from other persons as a group of a special nature. By also studying 

sexual excitations other than the manifestly open ones it discovers that 

all men are capable of homosexual object selection and actually 

accomplish this in the unconscious. Indeed the attachments of libidinous 

feelings to persons of the same sex play no small role as factors in 

normal psychic life, and as causative factors of disease they play a 

greater role than those belonging to the opposite sex. According to 

psychoanalysis, it rather seems that it is the independence of the 

object, selection of the sex of the object, the same free disposal over 

male and female objects, as observed in childhood, in primitive states 

and in prehistoric times, which forms the origin from which the normal 

as well as the inversion types developed, following restrictions in this 

or that direction. In the psychoanalytic sense the exclusive sexual 

interest of the man for the woman is also a problem requiring an 

explanation, and is not something that is self-evident and explainable 

on the basis of chemical attraction. The determination as to the 

definite sexual behavior does not occur until after puberty and is the 

result of a series of as yet not observable factors, some of which are 

of a constitutional, while some are of an accidental nature. Certainly 

some of these factors can turn out to be so enormous that by their 

character they influence the result. In general, however, the 

multiplicity of the determining factors is reflected by the manifoldness 

of the outcomes in the manifest sexual behavior of the person. In the 

inversion types it can be ascertained that they are altogether 

controlled by an archaic constitution and by primitive psychic 

mechanisms. The importance of the _narcissistic object selection_ and 

the _clinging_ to the erotic significance of the _anal_ zone seem to be 

their most essential characteristics. But one gains nothing by 

separating the most extreme inversion types from the others on the basis 

of such constitutional peculiarities. What is found in the latter as 

seemingly an adequate determinant can also be demonstrated only in 

lesser force in the constitution of transitional types and in manifestly 

normal persons. The differences in the results may be of a qualitative 

nature, but analysis shows that the differences in the determinants are 

only quantitative. As a remarkable factor among the accidental
