PHIL 258 Special Topics in Philosophy

Offers an in-depth examination of an issue or theme of philosophical importance. Topic to be announced. For Spring 2020 (Philosophy of Sex and Love): This course examines the philosophical, social, and ethical frameworks within which sexuality is understood and practiced. Using both classic and contemporary texts, we will critically explore conceptions of love, sexual desire, sanctioned
sex, perversions, and sexualized racialization, as well as ethical questions related to sex without love, promiscuity, non-monogamy, adultery, sexual assault, and sexual harassment.  Throughout, we
will attend to the intersections of sexuality, gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation.
