Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of ancient author names and terms that are mentioned in the book titled Chastity: A Study in Perception, Ideals, Opposition. The topic of "Chastity" brings up a nexus of related considerations such as moral ambiguity, the instability of moral value and ethical choices, the inner life and its reflexive relationship to itself, of vices masquerading as virtues, or as virtues treated as vices, and the repercussions of loss of innocence; of contempt, anger, pride, all subsumed under the guise of humility, and finally, what can be seen as a certain paralysis of the soul that becomes encased, even imprisoned within, irreconcilable moral dilemmas.

Keywords:chastity; moral dilemmas
