The human experience of sex and love has direct impact on our social well-being. By studying sexual philosophy, we allow ourselves, through exposure to a variety of alternative belief systems, to consider new possibilities and options as well as to develop a deeper understanding of the philosophy we already possess. This is the underlying principle behind the readings presented in Philosophy of Sex and Love. Coverage begins with an historical overview of some of the most influential thinkers such as Plato, Aristotle, Erich Fromm, and Alexander Comfort, who have helped shape contemporary discussions in the philosophy of sex and love. Then, ten major topics treated in the philosophy of sex and love are examined in detail. Guaranteed to spark lively debate, Philosophy of Sex and Love challenges readers to sharpen their critical faculties as they explore the reasons supporting each position and to develop a philosophy of sex and love that, when examined fully and rationally, will not only be self-satisfying but will promote the welfare of society as a whole.Synopsis:
