In this video, Elizabeth Brake (Arizona State University) discusses polyamory, the practice of having more than one sex and love partners, and its moral and legal considerations. This is part 4 of a series on Government and Marriage.

Professor of Philosophy at Rice University

I am a Professor of Philosophy at Rice University, where I recently moved from Arizona State University.

My research focuses on the philosophy of marriage, love, and sex, procreative ethics, and, more recently, on the state’s role in disaster response.  I have argued for radical marriage reform and coined the term “amatonormativity” to describe the special privileges given to certain relationships. I’ve also written on feminist political philosophy, and philosophy and Bob Dylan.
