Description

In recent decades, feminist philosophers have called for a rethinking of all the main problems and concepts of philosophical inquiry. From epistemology and metaphysics, to ethics and politics, philosophers have developed distinctively feminist approaches and arguments which recast and reshape philosophy as traditionally practiced. In this engaging text, Lynn Nelson canvasses feminist transformations of philosophy, highlighting the ways in which feminist analyses raise new philosophical questions and open new possibilities. THE WADSWORTH PHILOSOPHICAL TOPICS SERIES presents readers with concise, timely, and insightful introductions to a variety of traditional and contemporary philosophical subjects. With this series, students of philosophy will be able to discover the richness of philosophical inquiry across a wide array of concepts, including hallmark philosophical themes and themes typically underrepresented in mainstream philosophy publishing. Written by a distinguished list of scholars who have garnered particular recognition for their excellence in teaching, this series presents the vast sweep of today's philosophical exploration in highly accessible and affordable volumes. These books will prove valuable to philosophy teachers and their students as well as to other readers who share a general interest in philosophy.
