Sexual Ethics considers the traditional Western views, as well as Freudian explanations, of sexuality. Author Bruce E. Fleming proposes that sex operates in an intrinsically undefined area, one stranded between the two realms that otherwise define our public and private lives. The most heated debate regarding sexual matters is between liberal and conservatives. Whether or not these two groups can continue to co-exist under the umbrella of American democracy depends on their willingness to adhere to the basic principals of democracy.
Bruce E. Fleming holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from Vanderbilt University. He is Professor of English at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and author of Art and Argument (University Press of America, 2003) and Science and the Self (University Press of America, 2004).
