Description

The Routledge Companion to Feminist Philosophy is an outstanding guide and reference source to the key topics, subjects, thinkers, and debates in feminist philosophy. Fifty-six chapters, written by an international team of contributors specifically for the Companion, are organized into five sections: (1) Engaging the Past; (2) Mind, Body, and World; (3) Knowledge, Language, and Science; (4) Intersections; (5) Ethics, Politics, and Aesthetics. The volume provides a mutually enriching representation of the several philosophical traditions that contribute to feminist philosophy. It also foregrounds issues of global concern and scope; shows how feminist theory meshes with rich theoretical approaches that start from transgender identities, race and ethnicity, sexuality, disabilities, and other axes of identity and oppression; and highlights the interdisciplinarity of feminist philosophy and the ways that it both critiques and contributes to the whole range of subfields within philosophy.

Review quote

"This is an amazing volume, representing a staggering range of views, methodologies, and traditions."


--Jennifer Saul, University of Sheffield





"If feminism is to do justice to its claims of inclusiveness regarding the thought and lives of women, then it needs to be mindful of its own exclusionary past, its practices of gatekeeping and romantic claims about sisterhood. The Routledge Companion to Feminist Philosophy, conceived as an interdisciplinary, historical and conceptual collection of essays written by an array of thinkers versed in both the analytic and continental philosophical traditions, aims for a more critical, more inclusive feminist theory and practice. Let this collection accompany us in this crucial endeavor, learning from it and enhancing it as we work towards this richer feminist vision."


--Mariana Ortega, John Carroll University





"The Routledge Companion to Feminist Philosophy presents an exciting, comprehensive, and original pluralist presentation of feminist philosophy that is a much-needed update to existing feminist philosophy companions. Students, scholars, independent researchers, and departments interested in feminism and philosophy would do well to make sure they have access to this volume, and it should be a relevant resource for years to come. Reviewing such an expansive presentation of feminist philosophy across differences also raises considerations about the meanings and limits of pluralism and inclusion in feminist philosophy as an ongoing collective project."


--Amy Marvin, Hypatia Reviews Online
