Virtuous Liaisons: Care, Love, Sex, and Virtue Ethics

Raja Halwani

Author Raja Halwani discusses how virtue ethics illuminates three central areas of our lives, care, love, and sex, that are often considered crucial to a well-lived life. Halwani concludes that virtue ethics allows for those sexual lifestyles that are deemed by traditional morality to be wrong, such as promiscuity, open relationships, and sex work, thus boldly countering the conservative viewpoint of some virtue ethicists.

This important new study covers ground not yet addressed by either virtue ethicists or philosophers of sex and love.

Raja Halwani is associate professor of philosophy at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
