|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"Overall then, College Sex is a valuable collection. Most readers will want to skip and dip around the essays, looking for those that are most helpful to them. Many of the essays are not traditional philosophical approaches, but the use of communications and psychology scholarship in the book fits well with the philosophical discussion. Furthermore, the level of the writing is pitched well for lower level undergraduate courses in the philosophy of sex love: I plan to use some of the chapters here for my future courses." (Metapsychology, 31 May 2011)
"You actually get something from it. Rather than a textbook in a class that you read and forget almost instantaneously, College Sex forces you to see sex from a more objective perspective - you'll soon be asking questions regarding your own sex life and how good and healthy it actually is." (Her Campus, September 2010)
"The sex and philosophy combo might seem like a peculiar mix, but as you flip and through the book's sections (freshman year, sophomore year, junior year and senior year), it's plausible to see how Socrates, Nietzsche, Aristotle and sex are closely connected with one another." (Campus Circle, 25 August 2010)
From the Back Cover
Philosophy has a history of expanding wisdom to include more worldly affairs. Continuing this tradition, College Sex – Philosophy for Everyone investigates a broad array of philosophical and moral issues relating to the sexual practices of students. Within the unique social setting of college comes a varied assortment of sexual relations and experiments, ranging from the mutually respectful, to the inebriated, meaningless, and the degrading. So lay back and ponder:
- Do students’ sexual acts need to involve love in order to have value?
- Should college students avoid a “friends with benefits” relationship?
- Should we condone relationships between students and teachers?
- Why is college a socially acceptable space for experimentation?
Written with insight and humor, the essays shed light on sexual relations in college and examine a range of ethical issues, including: dating, cheating, courtship, homosexual experimentation, and drug and alcohol use, within the college setting.

I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in sex generally, and for anyone who has thought that sex is really something more than "love misspelled" as Harlan Ellison once put it.
