Do a conceptual analysis on Greta Christina
An important aspect of philosophical thinking is the ability to do conceptual analysis. Greta Christina Preview the document's paper is a great example of this. Throughout
her paper, she proposes a definition of sex, discusses how that definition captures
several cases that intuitively count as sex, but then discusses some more
complicated cases that either show that the definition is too broad (i.e., it includes or
counts some case as an instance of sex when intuitively it should not) or too narrow
(i.e., it excludes some case from counting as an instance of sex when we intuitively
think it should count).
This paper assignment is divided into two parts.
Expand on one of Greta Christina's several different definitions of sex and explain
how that definition is problematic. For example, Christina says, "Perhaps having sex
with someone is the conscious, consenting, mutually acknowledged pursuit of
shared sexual pleasure." You might explain this definition (or one of the other ones
that she considers) by giving a (fictional) example and showing how it exemplifies
each of the features listed in the definition. Then, you should explain why that
definition is problematic. For example, you could explain how there are cases that
we intuitively count (or don't count) as sex but aren't (or are) counted as sex
according to the definition (i.e., state whether the definition is too broad or too
narrow, or both, and show how).
