Summary
"Over the past thirty years, philosophy has become a vital arena for feminists. Recent feminist work has challenged canonical claims about the role of women and has developed new methods of analysis and critique, and in so doing has reinvigorated central areas of philosophy. The Blackwell Guide to Feminist Philosophy is a definitive introduction to the field, consisting of fifteen newly-contributed essays that apply philosophical methods and approaches to feminist concerns. From analyses of women in the history of philosophy to the relation of feminism to topics such as pragmatism, epistemology, political philosophy, aesthetics and phenomenology, the Guide is an excellent resource for those who wish to explore how feminist philosophy is transforming the very nature of philosophical inquiry."--Publisher's description
