In what ways does seduction differ from nonviolent rape? #Ehm @PartaiSocmed
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
s often difficult and seemingly picky, but proves rewarding in unanticipated and surprising ways
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
Normative philosophy of sexuality inquires about the value of sexual activity and sexual pleasure and of the various forms they take.
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
Thus normative philosophy of sexuality is concerned with the perennial questions of sexual morality
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
and constitutes a large branch of applied ethics.
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
It investigates what contribution is made to the good or virtuous life by sexuality
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
and tries to determine what moral obligations we have to refrain from performing certain sexual acts
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
and what moral permissions we have to engage in others.
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
Some philosophers of sexuality carry out conceptual analysis and the normative study of sexual ethics separately
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
They believe that it is one thing to define a sexual phenomenon
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
and quite another thing to evaluate the phenomenon as being morally right or wrong
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
Other philosophers of sexuality believe that a robust distinction
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
between defining a sexual phenomenon and arriving at moral evaluations of it cannot be made
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
that analyses of sexual concepts and moral evaluations of sexual acts necessarily influence each other.
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
Whether there actually is a tidy distinction between values and morals
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
on the one hand, and natural, social, or conceptual facts, on the other hand
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
is one of those fascinating, endlessly debated issues in philosophy, and is not limited to the philosophy of sexuality.
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
One thing to think about while reading the essays in this book is to what extent the au- thors keep distinct the conceptual & the normative
ANDREAS OCTAPUTRA J @ANDRE__OCTA
or imply, to the contrary, that this distinction is an impediment to the doing of the philosophy of sex.
