Sex the Measure of All ThingsA Life of Alfred C. KinseyJonathan Gathorne-Hardy A balanced, moving, humane portrait of one of this century's great researchers and social reformers. "America produced Alfred Kinsey, but he's big enough to go around." -- Elaine Showalter, Times Literary Supplement "A deeply humane book...This biography's vivid portrait of a genius possessed is so compelling that you end up caring more about the man than the science. Kinsey is one of the most fascinating and influential figures of the century, a flawed visionary whose brave and amusing experiences are a testament to the rich complexity of human sexuality...With grace and wit Gathorne-Hardy has given us the full measure of the man." -- Michael Shelden, Daily Telegraph "At exactly the right moment, Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy has produced a serious study of Kinsey, of the man and the work...This is the book we needed to cap Kinsey's work of liberation at this century's end. -- Gore Vidal For Gathorne-Hardy, Kinsey is primarily an artist, a collector, a novelist, a mythologist. He is a pioneer of modernism, along with Lawrence, Henry Miller and Picasso, and a philosopher of sexuality, along with Foucault. These may sound like strange bedfellows for the son of a strict Methodist family, growing up in small-town America. But in making Kinsey part of a global twentieth-century culture, Gathorne-Hardy opens the way for other scholars and critics to read the life and the work from a variety of intellectual and national perspectives. Alfred Kinsey was this century's first scientifically reputable and most influential researcher into sex. His Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (The Kinsey Report), published in 1948, was an explosive bestseller, followed in 1953 by his even more radical statistics on female sexuality -- both based on over 18,000 case histories. But Kinsey's exploration went much further than that. Bisexual, he experimented with many of the behaviors he was hearing about; and his wife and close colleagues experimented too. He pioneered observation and filming of sexual activity, the findings anticipated, and confirmed by, Masters and Johnson thirty years later. The revolutionary nature of his views on female sexuality could not become current until the feminism of the 1970s and 80s. There have been suggestions that his bisexuality and his courageous personal exploration biased his research. In fact, the reverse is true -- they partly explain why it was so successful and, in a field where only approximations are possible, more accurate than any since. Except where the culture has changed (with pre-marital sex, for example), all his major findings -- including his figures on homosexuality -- still stand up. As a result, his data (only 10% went into his two vast books) is still being actively mined today. This fascinating biography describes Kinsey's strict Methodist upbringing, his love of minute observation which he applied fir Sex the Measure of All Things: A Life of Alfred C.

Sex the Measure of All Things: A Life of Alfred C. Kinsey
Autor:

Gathorne-Hardy, Jonathan

Titel:

Sex the Measure of All Things: A Life of Alfred C. Kinsey

ISBN-Nummer:

9780253337344

For Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy, Alfred Kinsey is primarily an artist, a collector, a novelist, a mythologist. He is a pioneer of modernism, along with D.H. Lawrence, Henry Miller, and Picasso, and a philosopher of sexuality, along with Foucault. These may sound like unexpected peers for the son of a strict Methodist family, who grew up in small-town America. But in making Kinsey part of a global 20th-century culture, Gathorne-Hardy looks beyond the eccentricities and personal foibles of this often discredited scientist and reasserts Kinsey's importance as a sexual philosopher and social reformer.Alfred Kinsey was this century's first scientifically reputable and most influential researcher into sex. His Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (The Kinsey Report), published in 1948, was an explosive bestseller, followed in 1953 by his even more radical statistics on female sexuality. But his exploration went much further. Bisexual, Kinsey experimented with many of the behaviors he documented. His wife and close colleagues experimented too.This fascinating biography describes Kinsey's strict Methodist upbringing, his love of minute observation (which he applied first to academic entomology and then to human sexuality), and the obsessive work ethic that contributed to his death. Kinsey is perhaps even more controversial today than he was when his books were first published. Some researchers and religious groups have attacked his work. The man himself has frequently been lost in all of the claims and counterclaims, attacks and defenses, as well as the efforts to make his life conform to predetermined theories. Gathorne-Hardy -- whose biography is the first to offer a balanced portrait --conducted in-depth interviews with surviving family members, close colleagues, friends, and lovers. This subtle, penetrating study offers not just a series of new revelations, but whole new aspects of this complex and ultimately sympathetic man.
