These topics are followed by a presentation on the issues of homosexuality and hermaphrodism in human, as well as the role of endocrine system in these issues. The discussion then shifts to the psychiatric and psychological aspects of diverse human personality. A chapter examines the psychological distinction between male and female mind functioning.
