A Philosophical Introduction

Mari Mikkola

  • Treads new ground through a comprehensive investigation of different philosophical positions for and against pornography, providing much needed clarity on how pornography and other key notions are understood
  • Investigates important methodological issues by considering existing philosophical positions relative to the pornography industry, and by considering alternative pornographies that are said to be feminist, 'female-friendly', and non-heteronormative
  • Enriches extant philosophical debates by examining how discussions in different sub-areas (like feminist philosophy and aesthetics) intersect with and profit from one another
  • Examines relevant debates in various philosophical areas, including political philosophy, feminist philosophy, epistemology, ethics, aesthetics, and social ontology, thereby further helping readers to grasp philosophical methodology
