The Philosophy of Sex: Contemporary Readings

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Just what is normal sexual behavior? What is the role of fantasy in our sexual lives? How can we tell the difference between sexual harassment and actions that are simply in poor taste? Is there really any harm in looking at pornography? And is there a way to reconcile Christian faith with homosexual practice? People have been asking these questions for a long time, but there is still widespread disagreement among those who have proposed answers. In the fourth edition of The Philosophy of Sex, distinguished philosophers and social critics confront a variety of issues, including prostitution, adultery, masturbation, homosexuality, and the different attitudes men and women have about sex. Alan Soble has taught and written about the philosophy of sex and love since 1976. Once again he carefully collects the most innovative and exciting new pieces in his area of expertise and blends them with the field's most seminal contemporary writings. The fourth edition, the most comprehensive to date, still includes historically important essays by Thomas Nagel, Robert Solomon, Janice Moulton, Robert Gray, and Alan Goldman. To these solid foundations, Soble has added a new section on Kant and sex, as well as new essays by Michael E. Levin, Cheshire Calhoun, Irving Singer, and Pat Califia. Soble has also penned a new introductory essay, "The Fundamentals of the Philosophy of Sex," designed to ease students into, and provoke them about, the subject matter.
