Among the many topics explored by the philosophy of sexuality are procreation, contraception, celibacy, marriage, adultery, casual sex, flirting, prostitution, homosexuality, masturbation, seduction, rape, sexual harassment, sadomasochism, pornography, bestiality, and pedophilia. What do all these things have in common? All are related in various ways to the vast domain of human sexuality. That is, they are related, on the one hand, to the human desires and activities that involve the search for and attainment of sexual pleasure or satisfaction and, on the other hand, to the human desires and activities that involve the creation of new human beings. For it is a natural feature of human beings that certain sorts of behaviors and certain bodily organs are and can be employed either for pleasure or for reproduction, or for both.
The philosophy of sexuality explores these topics both conceptually and normatively. Conceptual analysis is carried out in the philosophy of sexuality in order to clarify the fundamental notions of sexual desire and sexual activity. Conceptual analysis is also carried out in attempting to arrive at satisfactory definitions of adultery, prostitution, rape, pornography, and so forth. Conceptual analysis (for example: what are the distinctive features of a desire that make it sexual desire instead of something else? In what ways does seduction differ from nonviolent rape?) is often difficult and seemingly picky, but proves rewarding in unanticipated and surprising ways.
Normative philosophy of sexuality inquires about the value of sexual activity and sexual pleasure and of the various forms they take. Thus the philosophy of sexuality is concerned with the perennial questions of sexual morality and constitutes a large branch of applied ethics. Normative philosophy of sexuality investigates what contribution is made to the good or virtuous life by…...

...This is further evidenced by the lag of his annual bonus compared to other managers at Stuart & Co.,even though Phil’s branch was one of the largest in terms of clients,sales volume and net profits.This shows that Phil think that ethical work is also important other than cost of control,the result are ethically good but not really good in terms of achiving budget targets.This will also lead into negative attidudes because he resist the company’s way and frustated because he does not fully compartible with the control system.However this does not mean Phil is a bad manager,he had a talent in financial matters,hard working,loyal and ethical.There is also a chance that Phil is in the wrong place,he is not suited in taking this position.

The Effects of Nazi Propaganda

...characters themselves, (all communist) are also typical portraits, still negative, of Weimar cinema characters. The father for example, is again a very close image of the patriarchal figure in Kuhle Vampe. They are both represented as “fat, decadent and a drunkard” (Baird 1996, pg 505). They are also extremely violent and abusive towards their wife and son, not due to the lack of love, but rather because of the pressure of the political, economic situation and class segregation the country endures. Another scene taken from the highly artistic cinema style, would clearly be the knife chase which leads to Heini's death. It is, once again, a bold reflection from the movie M . The mother can again be recognized as very similar to the one in Phill Jutzi's film Mother Krause's Trip to Happiness (1929). Not only are they represented as ignorant of the whole situation the country's enduring but they reflect the choices that some people would've preferred to have taken, the 'easy' way out, in other words, suicide. With the vast wave of unemployment, despair and misery which evolved to marginal behavior, wives and children often faced sexual and physical abuse. This leads to a point which at the time would surely have made it seem very attractive for the German youth to join the Hitler Youth. As John W. Baird said, “youth sensed that radical times called for radical solutions, and the road to salvation seemed deceptively simple. Their choice lays between the Soviet Star and Ernst......

Free Hugs Campaign

...it really makes people happy. Even new studies of scientist’s show that touch therapy like HUGS can help overcome some medical conditions like Depression and Osteoarthritis. They believe that people need four hugs for survival, eight for maintenance and twelve for proper physical growth in a day. They have also said that it is the best way to support anyone and communicate when words are not enough. Actually it didn’t start as a psychological experiment but just as a random act of kindness to spread happiness among people and brighten up their lives. When Juan Mann’s world turned upside down he had no one to support him, to smile at him, to wait for him and to hug him. And that’s how free hugs campaign started on December 1, 2004 in the Phill Street Mall in central Sydney, where he held the cardboard with the words “Free Hugs” written on both sides. For fifteen minutes people were staring at him and passing looks. Then there came a lady who hugged him and said how her dog had died that morning and it was also the first death anniversary of her only daughter who died in a car accident and all she needed at that time, when she was feeling so lonely, was a HUG. And when they parted after a hug, she was smiling. Juan Mann said that he felt like the king of the world and those smiles he got were the best thing that ever happened to him. Through this we can see how one hug can help two people. The best thing about a hug is that you usually can’t give one without getting one......

Mental Illness: Depression

...Mental Illness: Depression Phill S. Reg University of Phoenix Online HCA 240 July 20, 2014 Mental Illness: Depression Many American suffer from a form of mental illness. When you look at the statistics, it is quite alarming just how many Americans suffer from a mental illness. It is estimated that 26.2 percent of the American population from the ages of 18 and older suffer from a diagnosable mental illness (NIH, n.d). This is an astounding number to consider. If you do the math, that means that approximately 1 out of 4 Americans has a mental illness. We will discuss the mental illness of depression for this discussion. One of the most common mental illnesses in America is depression. A large number of Americans live with depression undiagnosed and untreated. What is Depression? “Over 9 million American adults suffer from clinical depression each year” (Stanford School of Medicine, 2014). Why does depression affect so many people? Let us first define depression. Most people would probably consider depression as being sad. However, clinical depression goes much deeper than just feeling sad. “Depression is a persistent state that can significantly impair an individual's thoughts, behavior, daily activities, and physical health” (Stanford School of Medicine, 2014). People who are diagnosed with depression will usually receive psychological assistance as well as regular prescriptions of some sort. The History of Depression “Melancholia” was...

...Devin Smith LEG 500 Law, Ethics, Corp Goverance Dr. Terry Phillips 7/18/11 Explain where an employee can reasonably expect to have privacy in the workplace. If there is a policy in place of the employer related to workplace including privacy issues that policy is legally binding. For example the employer may communicate that employees may enjoy privacy in certain demarcated areas of the office. The employee can enjoy privacy in those areas. According to Ethics in the workplace from a legal perspective employees can reasonably expect privacy in the bathroom and locker room. In such places video monitoring will not be accepted in a court of law. For instance, employers that wish to have an unquestionable right to look at or search for particular items and information kept on their premises should take every reasonable step to dispel any notion that their employers can expect privacy.(p.99-106) Employment manuals should make clear that the employer reserves the right to inspect and examine all areas of the workplace. There is no federal statute that provides general privacy protection in the private employment sector arena. However, in the federal case of Roe v. Wade, the United States Supreme Court held that there is implicit in the U.S. Constitution a right to privacy. A federal statute, 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1983, provides that anyone who, acting under color of law, deprives an individual of rights conveyed by the Constitution or laws of the United States shall be......

Developing Diverse Team

...skilled at inquiry (Senge, 1990). Further, dialogue is key in helping teams develop an understanding of individual and team diversity issues (Nafukho, 2008). Tajfel’s social identity theory and Senge’s adaptation of mental models lend insight into how individuals align themselves with groups and then subsequently draw conclusions about members of other groups. Social comparison is sometimes conducted of the entire outgroup by the individual (Tajfel, 1978). These perceptions create a category of outgroup which can lead to over generalizations and prejudices towards all members of this group which can be particularly detrimental to performance if these individuals are required to function as a team in the workplace (Pettigrew, 1982; Phills et al., 2011; Tsui et al., 1992). Conversely, strong social identity within a group can help maintain commitment to a project (Haslam et al., 2006). Intergroup contact theory Utilizing the groundbreaking work of social scientist Allport (1954) who identified conditions under which prejudice can be reduced, Pettigrew (1998) outlined five interrelated processes that foster a change of attitude about people of a different group. Specifically, these processes involve: (1) Learning about the outgroup to reduce prejudice by changing negative views. (2) Changing individual behavior toward the outgroup members. (3) Generating affective, positive emotions, especially empathy, through intergroup contact to reduce anxiety and......

Getting Inside Camera Phill

...The factors which makes Iddan, an engineer with no medical background, to pioneer the development of wireless endoscopy are he as an electo-optical engineer and was working on developing the “eye” of guided missile to its target. His friend at boston gave him information about technology used for viewing the interior lining of the digestive system which had lots of limitations, specially with viewing the small intestine. This small intestine causes serious disorders and only in United States approximately 19 million people suffer from disorders. Existing technology like X-ray and endo-scopes were unable to identify or investigate about small intestine. So the only option left was surgery and which was very crucial if the physician does not know which part of the small intestine is affected. So his friend encourages him to come up with better technology. Due to technology revolution after decade small video cameras which uses image sensors like CCDS (Charge coupled devices) has been developed. With his knowledge from developing the eye of guided missile he tried to make small missile like device which could travel through the intestine without a life line leading to the outside of the body and transmit images wirelessly to a receiver outside of the body. He has also done small experiment on chicken with his developed camera and as he succeeds he got more encouragement but he found battery of that camera get exhausted in few minutes.
