Description

Private moral decisions have profound public implications. In this Spring 2011 Evening Public Lecture Sarah Williams argues that what goes on in the private arena of the bedroom is as deeply significant and formative as what goes on in the public square. Furthermore the private and public spheres cannot be viewed as separate because each establishes the ground rules for the other. Sarah goes on to outline the sexual ethics of society and then suggests ways to reconnect the two spheres.
