6 June 2019: Research Seminar - Jacob Stegenga (Cambridge) - The Sciences of Sexual Desiree

ABSTRACT

Sexual desire is the subject of numerous sciences. These sciences deploy a fantastic range of empirical methods and formulate numerous theories about its subject. However, critics - from constructivists to conservatives - claim that these sciences cannot teach us about the real nature of sexual desire. I attempt to develop a philosophical lens through which we can respect the lessons of these critics, yet still learn from the sciences of sexual desire.
