About the Author

Caroline J. Simon is the author of several books, including The Disciplined Heart: Love, Destiny and Imagination. She is the John and Jeanne Jacobson Professor of Philosophy at Hope College in Holland, Michigan, with a concentration on humanities and ethics.


"I found this to be a very readable book. The author considers a number of interesting topics from flirting and seduction to pornography and prostitution to hooking up and casual sex. One of the values of this book is it helps one to consider the extent to which someone is functioning within an alternative view with integrity. . . . These virtue distinctions are presented by the author in such a way as to help others be more honest about their sexual struggles."--Rod Bassett, Journal of Psychology and Christianity, 2014, Vol. 33, No. 2
"In this thought-provoking book, philosopher and college teacher Caroline Simon seeks to bring clarity to our culture's sexual confusion. She uses helpful metaphor, optics, as a way to talk about six different lenses through which people view sex. . . . The book, written with the non-philosopher in mind, will be particularly useful for young adults searching for a way to think through sexual issues and discern the perspectives that shape media and culture."--Susan Olasky, World Magazine, February 11, 2012
