Presents, in one volume, a number of philosophical treatises on the subjects of sex and love and the relationship between the two. The essays include a variety of historical, theological, and philosophical perspectives and cover topics ranging from the traditional, such as marriage to current ones, such as sexual harassment. An historical overview including selections from ancient Greek, biblical, medieval and modern secularist traditions provides important background for understanding current debates; the selections feature contemporary discussions of traditional topics such as marriage, adultery, and prostitution, but also current issues such as homosexuality, natural/perverse, pornography, and sexual harrassment.
