Philosophy for our times: cutting edge debates and talks from the world's leading thinkers
Some would say we live in a sex obsessed age, but just how important is sexuality to our being? Should we along with Darwin and Freud see sex as central to our lives, or is it a passing hedonistic activity? And if it is central to what extent does our sexuality determine how we think and how we influence others?
LSE sociologist and 'Erotic Capital' theorist Catherine Hakim, author of Lust and Cambridge philosopher Simon Blackburn, leading French postmodernist Michèle le Doeuff and journalist and former priest Mark Vernon get serious about sex.
