Abstract

English This project aims to determine whether abuse exists in prostitution. To answer this question we have reconstructed three moral-philosophical theories that we felt were represented in public opinion. Furthermore we conducted interviews with prostitutes, clients and people somehow involved with prostitution. A historical study of sexual ethics and prostitution was a necessary task in order to answer the questions in concern. Our project covers one dimension, Theory of Science and Philosophy. Our conclusion using these methods is partly that you can not decide whether prostitution is abusive or not using abstract ethics. A better way to decide this is to use situational ethics in context with specific situations. Our conclusion also includes criticism of the three ethical directions when used to analyze the extent of abuse within prostitution. Danish Målet for dette projekt er at afgøre hvorvidt misbrug findes indenfor prostitution. For at svare paa dette sporgsmaal har vi benyttet tre moral filosofiske teorier, som vi føler repræsenterer den offentlige mening. Endvidere har vi interviewet prostituerede, kunder eller andre folk, som alle arbejder med eller indenfor prostitution. Et historisk indblik i seksuel etik og prostitution gennem tiderne var vigtigt for at kunne svare på spørgsmålet om dette. Projektet dækker én dimension; Theory of science and philosophy. Vores konklusion behandler blandt andet at ved brug af de filosofiske metoder, kan det være svært at bedømme, hvorvidt prostitution er misbrug. Ligeledes finder vi fjernetik svært at anbringe i de specifikke situationer, så en bedre metode til at få svar på vores spørgsmål, er ved at anvende næretik. Vores konklusion indeholder også en kritik af de tre etiske retninger, når de skal bruges til at analysere mængden af misbrug indenfor prostitution.
