Summary

Including over fifty newly commissioned survey articles, this volume represents the first truly comprehensive guide to feminist philosophy. The advent and development of feminist philosophy are traced and contextualized by the editors' introduction, followed by essays that reflect both conventional philosophical divisions as well as a number of topics absent from mainstream philosophy, and including sections on Feminist Perspectives on the Western Canonical Tradition, Theories of Subjectivity and Embodiment, Moral Theory, Social and Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Knowledge, Philosophy of Language, Aesthetics, and Practical Concerns. A unique feature is the inclusion of essays tracing the emergence of feminist philosophy in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe.
