Description

This book addresses crucial issues that postmodern theory has raised for feminism and for feminist theology in particular. Postmodern critiques of metaphysics question whether feminism is ultimately foundationalist and essentialist, attributing an essential nature to "woman" and substituting a new metaphysical theory in place of the patriarchal foundationalism of Western thought. Marta Frascati-Lochhead develops this critique of metaphysics through a reading of the Italian philosopher, Gianni Vattimo.

Review quote

"The author has succeeded in providing a new and significant vantage point on the issues facing feminist theology by drawing on the philosophy of Gianni Vattimo. She makes it clear that Vattimo's thought is particularly illuminating for our time, given his exploration of the phenomenon of 'generalized communication.' Complicated issues of post-structuralist thought are treated with laudable clarity." -- Richard Grigg, Sacred Heart University
