Description

What does it mean to be a man in a world of dissolving sexual stereotypes? How far have sexual politics gone to effect a shift in male consciousness? Beyond the New Man of the 80's and the Wild Man of the American men's movement there lies a more radical conception: the quantum vision of the undiscovered sex. N's story of his marriage to V and his experience of fatherhood is also an account of a theory being put to the test. The equality that the couple embrace is underpinned by the conviction that unconditional love between a man and a woman - an exchange of souls - can lead to a newly unified, balanced individual, a constructive and spiritual androgyny. Might it not be that, by adjusting their imaginations, men can free themselves from old conditioning and begin to reinterpret the world? "Quantum Man" charts an extraordinary emotional journey. It is an intimate confession and an intriguing speculation on the nature of masculinity. In its connecting of love, sex, marriage and childhood with the emergent philosphies of quantum physics, it is a provocative and inspirational challenge to the hidden assumptions of male politics.show more
