Product description

Is sex important? How concerned should we be about our sexual choices and their effects? Is sexual desire best understood in terms of pleasure, love, interpersonal union and/or procreation? In an era of radical redefinition of marriage and rapidly changing views about the nature of sex, Ethical Sex seeks to bring some philosophical clarity to our thinking. Arguing in the context of liberal assumptions, the book explores reasons as to why our sexual behaviour is uniquely morally important. In a series of challenging chapters, arguments are examined for and against differing views on what might constitute 'ethical sex'. Anyone interested in the philosophy of sex and love, the nature of marriage, metaphysics and the human world around us will want to engage with this original and provocative work. "McCarthy's book on sex and marriage is full of fascinating, creative and powerful arguments. It interacts with a broad base of philosophical, literary and theological reflection, from Aquinas and Shakespeare to a rich and diverse set of contemporary philosophers. All who want to have an informed view on traditional sexual ethics need to look at this work." Alexander Pruss, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Baylor University; Author of One Body. "This splendidly and engagingly written book deserves wide attention and careful reading. It defends in an intelligent way - brilliantly debating views opposite to the author's own - a number of important and, I believe, very true theses about human sexuality and sexual ethics." From Preface by Josef Seifert, Professor, International Academy of Philosophy-Institute of Philosophy Edith Stein, Granada; Author of True Love.
