Review quote

'Braidotti's tour de force shows the immense theoretical impact of recent French and American feminist interventions in Western philosophy. It will transform the ways in which both pre-feminist and feminist thinkers evaluate feminist theory, Western philosophy, and, especially, feminist philosophy.' Sandra Harding, University of Delaware 'This book is an invaluable source for anyone interested in the dialogue between feminism and post-structuralist philosophy, and an inspiring example of feminism unafraid. Highly recommended.' SWIP Newsletter 'Never less than challenging and provides a clear account of why post structuralism is seen by so many leading feminist critics as a resource and companion for feminist studies.' Times Higher Education Supplement 'All women in philosophy should read [this book] for ideas, inspiration, controversial assessment of our current situation and sheer intellectual vitality.' Journal of Gender Studies 'Lucid, rich and incisive analysis of the contribution of feminism to philosophy.' Sociology 'Highly recommended to women philosophers, and should be compulsory reading for all men philosophers.' The Philosophical Quarterly 'Braidotti's "tour de force" shows the immense theoretical impact of recent French and American feminist interventions in Western philosophy.
