CASTEL, Pierre-Henri. Algumas reflexões para estabelecer a cronologia do "fenômeno transexual" (1910-1995). Rev. bras. Hist. [online]. 2001, vol.21, n.41, pp.77-111. ISSN 0102-0188.

The "Transsexual Phenomenon" (Benjamin) is a reliable index of the historical modifications of scientific, cultural and political perception of sexual identity in the 20th century. As an introduction to a chronology and selected bibliography of this phenomenon, I suggest a clue: the systematic denial of the relevance of psychoanalytic explanations of transsexualism by all the biologists, endocrinologists and sociologists who dealt with the problem.

Keywords : transsexualism; psychoanalysis; epistemology.
