Think Olio presents: Questioning the Origins of Sexual Desire

Friday February 23: 7:00PM 8:00PM

Sexual desire and eroticism were and still are considered today as a-philosophical, even anti-philosophical topics. When we wonder why philosophers rarely speak about sexuality, we seem to face not only a moral question, but also a linguistic one. Is the language itself unable to capture such a subjective, qualitative - and physiological experience? And if some descriptive approach is still possible, what does appear to be at play when we question the origins of sexual desire?
