This seminal collection of classic and contemporary essays reveals sex for what it is - philosophically interesting and very important. It forces sex and philosophy out of the closet where it engages freely, licitly, and seriously with normative ethics, metaphysics and issues in social and political philosophy. It is not all you want to know, or not know, about sex (even cybersex), but it's a great start and sure to raise your temperature. -- Michael Levine, The University of Western Australia The leading textbook in the field has just gotten better - reorganized, friendlier, updated, and with a goldmine of resource options. No one knows the field better than Soble, and he has been ably supported in this revision by someone who teaches in the field. -- John Kleinig, professor of philosophy, John Jay College of Criminal Justice Still the best anthology on the market, Soble's The Philosophy of Sex in its new 5th edition has been somewhat thematically simplified into four sections which more clearly reveal the interconnections between topics in the field. The updated set of essays includes the important seminal essays on the metaphysics and morality of sex as well as recent contributions on issues such as cybersex, virtue ethics and sex, and sexual relationships in academia. Students and instructors will find especially attractive the new addition of summaries and study questions for each essay. All scholars and students of the philosophy of sex will want to have this book in their collections. -- Sarah Hoffman, University of Saskatchewan Sex influences everything: our identities, social practices, medicine and the law. Yet nothing so important to human life is so poorly understood. The Philosophy of Sex goes a long way to making things clearer. This is a smart book, full of key issues and debates of the day, debates about who we are and how we relate to one another. Everyone has something to learn about sex, and everyone will learn something from this book. -- Timothy F. Murphy, University of Illinois College of Medicine at ChicagoReseña del editor:
