Sexual Ethics: Liberal Vs. Conservative

Voorkant
University Press of America, 2004 - 202 pagina's
Oftentimes subjects related to sexuality such as abortion and homosexuality are flash points for political argument between liberals and conservatives. In recent years the debate on these topics has become shrill.
Sexual Ethics considers the traditional Western views, as well as Freudian explanations, of sexuality. Author Bruce E. Fleming proposes that sex operates in an intrinsically undefined area, one stranded between the two realms that otherwise define our public and private lives. The most heated debate regarding sexual matters is between liberal and conservatives. Whether or not these two groups can continue to coexist under the umbrella of American democracy depends on their willingness to adhere to the basic principals of democracy.
