Expanded Course Description
Philosophers have deeply explored knowledge, existence, politics and ethics. Yet love and sex, which for most of us are central features of a good life, have received far less attention. When they have been addressed, particularly in the Western tradition, they have often been relegated to a place of lower status along with the body and passions in general. The result is that though love and sex may occupy a good deal of our time, attention, and emotional energy; though they cause us more acute joy and pain than most other human practices; we don?t have ready access to a strong tradition of thinking about these aspects of human life. In this course, material from the philosophers who have thought about love and sex will be explored along with contemporary struggles around sexuality, sexual identity, sexual violence, love, romance, intimate relationships and marriage. Students will be challenged to develop their own philosophy of love and sex as a resource for exploring and surviving the challenges we all face in intimate and romantic relationships. This course will include the use of film and other visual images that some students may find offensive or troubling.
