Is there any conflict between traditional, conservative sexual mores and contemporary ideas of sexual freedom?
Mutahhari responds to this question in an engaging dialogue where he takes on Bertrand Russell in his Marriage and Morals.
From the vantage point of a consummate Islamic scholar, Mutahhari points out how the 'sexual revolution' in the West was a reaction to the Christian denial of man's natural desires, and explores whether, from a religious perspective, sexuality must be viewed as inherently evil.
Hethen examines whether sexual values are inborn or learned, and whether social change should necessarily lead to changes in sexual values.
He elaborates on the social, spiritual, and psychological consequences of unrestrained sexual freedom and explores the relationship between love and sexuality.
This is essential reading for anyone who wants to know the Islamic perspective on sexuality.
