Perversion - Dermott O'Flanagan Sexual Ethics Paper The issues of sexual ethics in relation to morality and perversion have been addressed in depth by each of the gentleman at this table. Sexual activity as described by Solomon and Nagle is comprised of a moral standard and ‘naturalness’ aspect. So, in claiming an act is perverted we must first examine it through a moral framework and understand how this interacts with the ‘naturalness’ of a particular act. Solomon makes the distinction as follows “Perversion is an insidious concept…To describe an activity as perverse is not yet a full blown moral condemnation, for it need not entail that one ought not to indulge in such activities.” Along with the examination of the nature of an act, there must be clear justification as to why sexual acts deserve special separate ethical principles....   [tags: essays research papers]

Perversion and the Internet - Perversion and the Internet The Internet. An information super-highway to hate, violence, and child pornography. Sure it was ok when the nudie pictures came out, but teaching children racism and bigotry and exploiting innocent children in a sexual manner is taking things a little too far. Buckle your seatbelts and strap on those eyeglasses; we are about to take a ride on the “Informational Highway”.

Perversion of Society - Perversion of Society In today’s society a person is shaped by family, friends, and past events, but in Aldous Huxley’s classic novel, Brave New World, there is no such thing as family, history and “true” friends. The government controls every aspect of an individual from their creation in the hatcheries to their conditioning for their thoughts and careers. In this brave new world the ideas of stability and community reign supreme, and the concept of individualism is foreign and suppressed, “Everyone belongs to everyone else, after all,” (47)....   [tags: essays research papers] 1154 words

Fetishism, perversion and the Gay Identity - Fetishism, perversion and the Gay Identity The contemporary Euro-American idea of identity as coherent, seamless, bounded and whole is indeed an illusion. On the contrary, the self carries many internal contradictions and nuances as a reflection of the many roles that a person plays in various social circles.

Homosexuality in the Film Latter Days and in Sexual Perversion by Nagel - From the assigned readings and film, I felt that I have gained a better understanding on one of the most controversial types of relationships, homosexuality. The topic of homosexuality isn’t easy to openly talk about but it is important as philosophy students, to have an open-mind about topics that we don’t partake in. Doing so allows us to promote new ways of thinking about the world around us and see them in a whole new light. In this personal response paper, I will discuss homosexuality in connection with the film Latter Days to determine why a homosexual relationship can meet Kant’s criteria for acceptable love as mentioned in Ruse’s essay, “Is Homosexuality Bad Sexuality?”, as well as why it qualifies as a complete and healthy relationship as described by Nagel in “Sexual Perversion.” Michael Ruse’s essay revolves around the central question if homosexuality is an acceptable form of relationship....   [tags: Homosexuality]

The Perversion of Dorian's Soul in Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray - The Perversion of Dorian's Soul in Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray         The soul is thought to be an immaterial entity coexisting with our bodies which is credited with the faculties of thought, action, and emotion.  It is the part of our body which is believed to live on after the body dies.  In Oscar Wilde's, The Picture of Dorian Gray, the main character, Dorian Gray, destroys the innocence of his soul and becomes corrupt. He becomes corrupt by failing to live a life of virtue.  The main reason for his transformation can be attributed to a portrait painted of him that captured the true essence of his innocence.  This portrait is the personification of his soul.  At the beginning of the book Dorian makes a wish that inevitably changes his life forever.  His wish is that, "If it were I who was to be always young, and the picture that was to grow old!  For that - for that - I would give everything!  Yes, there is nothing in the whole world I would not give!  I would give my soul for that!" (Wilde, 40)  As Dorian's wish of staying young and beautiful forever come true so does the fact that he has given his soul away to the devil.  Another contributing factor to the perversion of Dorian's soul comes from his supposed friend, Lord Henry Wotton.  Lord Henry fills Dorian's head with his outrageous philosophies such as, "....youth is the one thing worth having....   [tags: Oscar Wilde The Picture of Dorian Gray]

The Catcher In The Rye - Some may say that the main character of J.D. Salinger’s novel The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield, is merely the average teenager, although he seems to think about sex and women quite a lot for his age of sixteen. This point can be easily argued in many ways, one example being the time Holden called a perfect stranger, Faith Cavendish, to get together at an unruly time of night. Another example of the main character’s perversion is when he hired a prostitute named Sunny, and never actually accomplished anything....   [tags: essays research papers] 835 words

The Crucible Coursework Essay - The Crucible Coursework Essay The Crucible was written in 1952 by the playwright Arthur Miller. It is an allegory of the McCarthy ‘witch-hunts’ which occurred during the 1950’s. It was effectively the arrest and questioning of those suspected of communist views or that sympathised with communists. The USA was very suspicious of communists due to the Cold War between itself and the USSR. Joe McCarthy, leader of the governmental organisation, the Anti-Democracy Policy, headed the hunts. Arthur Miller was himself arrested by McCarthy....   [tags: Essay on The Crucible] 1119 words

Catch-22 - The Deft Touch of Catch 22: Heller's Harmonious Unison of Comedy and Tragedy Since the dawn of literature and drama, comedy and tragedy have always been partitioned into separate genres. Certainly most tragedies had comedic moments, and even the zaniest comedies were at times serious. However, even the development of said tragicomedies left the division more or less intact. Integrating a total comedy and a total tragedy into a holistic union that not only preserved both features, but also blended them into a new and harmonious entity remained elusive....   [tags: essays research papers] 1602 words

Frankenstein - Ever since the earliest scientists, including the likes of Aristotle and Plato, the question of the morality of man's meddling in nature has been a prevalent issue. While science can provide boundless amounts of invaluable contributions to mankind, ultimately some scientific endeavors should never have been pursued. In Frankenstein, Mary Shelly explores the ethics involved in this query through the creation of a wonder of science, and its inevitable consequences. Much of the analysis of the consequences that the scientific perversion of nature harbors is manifested by the inner struggle within both Dr....   [tags: European Literature] 654 words

Orwell's and Huxley's Visions of the Future - In contrast to Orwell’s dystopia dominated by a totalitarian government in 1984, Huxley’s interpretation of the future consisted of a corrupted world in which comfort and techonology has overpowered what was once considered important and admirable. Both internal and external conflicts have been masked in Huxley’s society, where human beings are blinded by the pleasures that are presented to them. As asserted in the passage by social critic Neil Postman, Huxley’s vision of the future can be analyzed as far more relevant than that of Orwell’s to today’s materialistic world; pleasure has become the foundation and a contorted necessity of society....   [tags: Compare/Contrast: Famous Authors] 771 words

Censorship is nothing new and its effects are constantly felt throughout society. Many societies use censorship to protect the established moral and social order.

Talking To Children About Sex - Other than conversations with friends that did not make much sense at the time, the first thing I remember clearly was the Sexual Maturation Program that my Elementary School offered in the sixth grade. I remember going into the school library with all of the other sixth graders. The instructor for this session was a nurse. She had four diagrams (2 for male and 2 for female) as well as a short video that showed the naked body, focusing on the sexual genitalia and reproductive organs. I realize the point of that was to pre-empt fears and questions that arise while experiencing puberty, as opposed to ‘the sex talk.’ My parents approached me together, taking me into their bedroom and they asked me what I knew (or had heard) about sex....   [tags: Parenting, argumentative, persuasive] 1113 words

Although the loss of life was greater during the Great Leap Forward and the second Sino-Japanese war, suffering is not only measured in loss of life. Great pieces of cultural heritage was destroyed, official institutions seized functioning and everyone was in danger of being accused of counter-revolutionary (so called black) activities or tendencies. This might seem as the very definition of a society in a chaotic state, but it is interesting to discuss what is actually understood as chaos....   [tags: china, world history, asia]

Both terms have a powerful social and personal component. Both terms connote an integration of values and the environment. So, too, do “hunt ethics,” an integration of values and an action based upon biology and the ‘land.’ The hunter has affection and awe for all of nature’s creations, perhaps more so than any other human observer, for the hunter must read the most subtle signs of his quarry, its habitat and its behavior, to be successful....   [tags: Hunting] 2300 words
