Abstract: In this paper, I will present a theory of sexual objectification, characterizing one interesting species of objectification as ‘mind-insensitive seeing-as’. As a preliminary, I’ll sketch four leading accounts of objectification, and identify various apparent areas of disagreement, both between them and with my own view. I’ll argue that these are not genuine areas of disagreement, so that the accounts are not real rivals, either to mine or to each other. Ground-clearing achieved, I will introduce my theory in some detail, and explore its capacity to explain how a range of images, both pornographic and non-pornographic, tend to ‘objectify’, in my sense.
