Sexual Desire free pdf A passionate and consoling study of sexual love by one of Britain's finest philosophers. "A dazzling treatise, as erudite and eloquent as Simone de Beauvoir's "The Second Sex" and considerably more sound in its conclusion." - "TLS". "He is an eloquent and practised writer" - "The Independent". When John desires Mary or Mary desires John, what does either of them want? What is meant by innocence, passion, love and arousal, desire, perversion and shame? These are just a few of the questions Roger Scruton addresses in this thought-provoking intellectual adventure. Beginning from purely philosophical premises, and ranging over human life, art and institutions, he surveys the entire field of sexuality. Equally dissatisfied with puritanism and permissiveness, he argues for a radical break with recent theories. Upholding traditional morality - though in terms that may shock many of its practitioners - his argument gravitates to that which is candid, serene and consoling in the experience of sexual love.
