Philosophy and Sex
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The first edition of Philosophy and Sex in 1975 took out of the closet a subject formerly off limits to open philosophical inquiry. This collection of contemporary philosophical essays on abortion, adultery, feminism, homosexuality, monogamy, perversion, and promiscuity brought together in a single volume a forthright and relatively nontechnical discussion of these issues accessible not only to philosophers and their students, but to nonprofessionals as well. Greatly expanded and updated, the third edition of this book retains such classic essays as the Shulamith Firestone-Robert Solomon debates over love and feminism, and includes new selections on abortion; rape; same-sex marriage; pornography; and the conceptualization of gender, sexuality, and perversion.
