Taking Our Assumptions Out of the Closet: Psychobiological Research on Homosexuality and its Implications for Christian Dialogue

Heather Looy

Psychobiological research on sexual orientation is both based on, and interpreted through the lenses of, a number of generally unexamined philosophical and theoretical assumptions. Heather Looy examines five such assumptions and demonstrates how they influence the interpretation and applications of this research. Both researchers and interpreters of the research are challenged to think differently about these assumptions, and to transform the study of sexual orientation by taking seriously both the interdisciplinary nature of the issue and the embodied and relational dimensions of human nature. Ms. Looy is an assistant professor of psychology at The King's University College.
