Le Sexe, d'hier à aujourd'hui

Un landscape de los angeles sexualité à travers les âges.
La pulsion sexuelle obéit à bien d’autres appels qu’à celui de l. a. survie de l’espèce, et témoigne, par les actes qu’elle induit, d’une grande diversité d’objets, de formes et de sens. Quelques repères dans l’histoire des moeurs humaines, allant de l’Antiquité à nos jours, permettent de le constater : en dépit de l’universalité des pratiques, ni leur forme, ni leur signification, ni les limites qu’on leur donne ne sont restées les mêmes, à travers l’histoire et les cultures, comme le montre l. a. première partie de cet ouvrage.

Cet ouvrage croise les regards de spécialistes de toutes disciplines – historiens, sociologues, sexologues, psychologues… – pour former un landscape de los angeles sexualité à travers les âges.
