Description

Join the College of Liberal Arts in the University Forum Lecture, "Sex for Sale" a talk by Graham G. Priest, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, The Graduate Center, City University of New York.

In Western cultures it is widely held that prostitution is immoral and ought to be illegal.  Are such views justified?  There are arguments for them that come from a variety of perspectives: religious, historical, sociological, psychological, legal and ethical.  In this talk, Dr. Priest will examine some of these arguments and show that none of them vindicate the belief that prostitution is immoral or show that it ought to be illegal.
