The Ancient Book of Sex and Science by Scott MorseThis collection of mid-century styled paintings and other works of art by four obscenely talented Pixar animation designers -- Nate Wragg , Scott Morse , Lou Romano , and Don Shank -- hearkens back to the days of the Golden science books Like Biology , Mathematics , and Chemistry Experiments , and the How and Why Wonder Books , but the theme this time is sex and robots, sex and aliens, and sex and math.

‘The Ancient Book of Sex and Science’, illustrated by 4 Pixar talents
In this fascinating book Giulia Sissa looks at sensuality and sexual desire in the Greek, Roman, and early Christian worlds, demonstrating how modern concepts of sexuality have emerged from the practices and theories of ancient times. Countering the assumptions of many other scholars, Sissa emphasizes the centrality of heterosexual desire and passion in the classical period, arguing that the importance of homosexuality has been overemphasized. Drawing widely on contemporary literature and philosophy, Sissa examines each culture in turn, arriving at a variety of fresh insights. She draws a distinction between pleasure and desire in the ancient world, for example, and she analyes the different ways in which men and women were seen to experience erotic feeling, looking closely at portrayals of such transgressive women as Medea, Clytemnestra, and Jocasta. Incisive and often provocative, this is a striking new analysis of sexual attitudes in the classical and post-classical world. Skip to main content. Description Reviews.
