LEC9: Erotic Sex
March, 3rd 2010
! first formulation: always act as a rational being among other rational beings
! rational beings are self legislating and autonomous
! by treating them as means then you demote them from their autonomous
quality (end)
Soble's Solution
! 5 ways of interpreting second formulation
! Behavioural internalism
! you just look at what is going on in this particular action at this particular time
! similar to Kant formulation but only for particular time as opposed to life time
in Kant (marriage)
! Psychological internalism
! Thin externalism
All these solutions are deontological
! eg. prostitute vs. clients are treating each other with contempt
! people with unorthodox sexuality etc. are harmed not by their activity but by the
criticism they receive
Yet Kant Captures something crucial
! nakedness makes us vulnerable and in a sexual encounter then they are
intrinsically vunerable thus it raises red flags in terms of virtue ethics and the
principle of harm
Might one want to be treated as a means?
! by doing you favours they are treating you are an end but it is disrespecting what
you really want (to be treated as a mean and be desired)
Desiring and desiring that
! the word desire is ambiguous
! want : something very close to desire but it doesn't carry emotional kick
! desiring requires propositional logic
! but you cannot find equivalent clause to desire in terms of the emotional
significance
These words carry a layered emotional style
! these macho tones in the diction may be a way for males to conceal their
vunerability
Love and Sex: The Missionary Position
! doctrines being preached
