In this essay, Winnicott gives a succinct account of the factors that need consideration when studying homosexuality and bisexuality. He looks at this from the perspective of psychoanalysis and normal child development and its variations, as well as from the societal perspective. His notes suggest a clear wish to attend to this area objectively, without prejudice and fear, at a time of great societal change in attitude towards homosexuality.
