Recently, scientists announced that they found some genes that might be associated with sexual orientation and a biological explanation for the reason gay men tend to have older brothers. But the field of sexual orientation research is far broader and more complicated than two studies—and Lisa Diamond , a psychologist and sexual orientation researcher at the University of Utah, knows that better than most. She spoke with Newsweek about what she and her colleagues in the field know—and what they don't—about how a person's sexual orientation might form. What do we actually know? How much of a person's sexual orientation can be chalked up to biology? Probably the strongest current evidence is for genetic contributions—but that doesn't mean we've found a gene.

The Gay Science by Friedrich Nietzsche is a collection of masterfully written musings about art, religion, God, literature, human psychology, the difference between the sexes, thinking, the illusion of the contemplative minds, free will, actors, and morality. Nietzsche despises systematic thinking, he rejects the British philosophical tradition and the German tradition. The urge to categorize information is the primary pursuit of these thinkers and it is not that he rejects this mode of thinking as useless, but that it is fatally flawed. He points out that our conception of cause and effect and virtue are neither self-evident nor logically sound. Nietzsche considers himself an artist and a thinker and presumes that his audience are artists. What artists have in common is a subject that is much discussed in this book.
