Pat Reif Lecture "Gender, Sexuality, and Ethics: New Perspectives"

This lecture approaches issues from historical vantage points with contemporary insights and questions, offering a basis for “development” in philosophical, scientific, and religious understandings of sexual ethics. The framework is one of justice, arguing if sexuality is to be creative, not destructive, in personal and social relationships, there is no substitute for discerning how it can be just. Margaret Farley, Ph.D. is Gilbert L. Stark Professor Emerita of Christian Ethics at Yale University Divinity School. She is the author most recently of, Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics. She writes extensively on ethical methodology, medical ethics, sexual ethics, social ethics, historical theological ethics, ethics and spirituality, justice and HIV/AIDS.
