Throw her heart
The book is an entry-level survey of various viewpoints on sex and overall does a good job. I’m not sure what I was expecting. It is good, but I think it lacks a bit of depth.
They sent it just the way they described it. It was such a great deal, especially since my teacher refers back to this book a lot.
This book presupposes a working knowledge of philosophy. If you have not read and are not fluent in the philosphies of a wide spectrum of writers, this book makes very little sense. It is densely written and should be viewed as an upper level or graduate reading.
I read this book in college on my own and I loved it!! really interesting topics and chapters.
This is a great book. The arguments of being sex positive or sex negative, who is best. What is or isn't sex in some philosophers point of view and what is rape, homosexual, etc. Have to read a few times to understand the jist of things but hey, it's a philosophy book...kind of what's expect from philosophers.
