Review quote

"Each essay blends careful historical analysis and feminist theory. Also, these are not 'add women and stir' works, that is, they truly integrate feminist theory (and ultimately transform the texts) rather than take the texts as given and simply 'add on' women's experiences. This is NEW feminist scholarship. Each treatment brings something new to our understanding of a canonical work." -- Diane Raymond, Simmons College "Bar On includes historical, psychological, literary (poststructural) in addition to philosophical essays and clearly forges the current forefront of feminist responses to classical texts of Western philosophy." -- Inez Alfors, State University of New York, College at Oswego
