What is the meaning of sex?Everyone in every time and place is interested in sex. Our own time is obsessed by it. One would think that a society obsessed by sex would understand it very well. But the truth is that obsession drives out understanding. We no longer understand even the common sense of sexuality, the things that were common knowledge in supposedly less enlightened times.Acclaimed philosopher J. Budziszewski remedies this problem. His wise, gracefully written book about the nature, meaning, and mysteries of sexuality restores lost wisdom, raising and answering such questions as:•Does sex have to mean anything at all?•What is the meaning of the sexual powers, of sexual differences, of sexual love, of sexual beauty, of sexual purity?•Is sexuality "all about sex"?•why does sexuality stir up such transcendent longings for something more than sex?On the Meaning of Sex corrects the most prevalent errors about sex, particularly the errors of the sexual revolution, which by mistaking pleasure for a good in itself has caused untold pain and suffering. In restoring the meaning and purpose of sex, the author reclaims what Dante calls "the intelligence of love.""Looking out over the sexual landscape of our time," Budziszewski writes, "I see a terrain of unutterable sweetness, despoiled by unmentionable pain. Yet who knows? Perhaps it is not too late to redeem the unutterable sweetness. Shall we try to find out?"

J. Budziszewski is a Professor of Government and Philosophy at the University of Texas, Austin.
