It is often said that “lust,” as opposed to “love,” is a bad thing.  It is also said that sexual “objectification” is always bad, especially for women.  However, Simon Blackburn argues that “lust” isn’t necessarily bad, and Nussbaum argues that “objectification” can be a “wonderful” part of sexual life.  Keeping these points in mind, please complete the following 2-part exercise:

 

Part 1: Find an image online (no actual nudity or graphic depiction) and add it as an attachment to a post. In the post itself, write a paragraph how Blackburn would argue that lust, in the context of the image you chose, is not necessarily a bad thing.

OR.

Write a paragraph how Nussbaum would argue that objectification, in the context of the image you chose, can be a wonderful part of sexual life. 

 

Part 2:  post a separate discussion response addressing the following three points:

 

  1. Write one paragraph stating what you think of Blackburn’s arguments about “lust.”
  2. Write one paragraph stating what you think of Nussbaum’s arguments about “objectification.”
  3. Write a final paragraph in which you provide a critical assessment of the authors’ positions based on the conclusions
