Subjects: PHI, phil
Book synopsis: \ud \ud The thirteen specially-commissioned essays in this volume are written by philosophers at the forefront of feminist scholarship, and are designed to provide an accessible and stimulating guide to a philosophical literature that has seen massive expansion in recent years. Ranging from history of philosophy through metaphysics to philosophy of science, they encompass all the core subject areas commonly taught in anglophone undergraduate and graduate philosophy courses, offering both an overview of and a contribution to the relevant debates. Together they testify to the intellectual value of feminism as a radicalizing energy internal to philosophical inquiry. This volume will be essential reading for any student or teacher of philosophy who is curious about the place of feminism in their subject.
  • The results below are discovered through our pilot algorithms. Let us know how we are doing!

    • 3 See Andrea Nye, 'Semantics in a New Key', in Philosophy in a Feminist Voice: Critiques and Reconstructions, ed. Janet A. Kourany (New Jersey: Princeton University Press, 1998).
    • 4 An example is Deborah Cameron, whose criticisms I started to address in my 'Disempowered Speech', in Feminist Perspectives, Philosophical Topics 23 2 (1996), 127-147.
    • 5 How to do Things with Words, 2nd edition (Oxford: University Press, 1975).
    • 23 The Man of Reason, by Genevieve Lloyd (Methuen & Co. Ltd.: London, 1984), is mentioned in the 'Introduction' to this volume, and in many papers here.
    • 24 Cp. John McDowell, 'Antirealism and the Epistemology of Understanding', in Meaning and Understanding, eds. H. Parret and B. Bouverese (Berlin, New York: Walter de Gruyer, 1981) 225-48. McDowell shows that a semantic theory corresponds to an isolable psychological state in Dummett's view. I take the isolability claim to be endorsed by others than Dummett, even if others don't rely upon it to draw those anti-realist theses that McDowell was concerned to refute.
    • 25 See e.g. Naomi Scheman 'Confessions of an Analytical Philosopher Semi-Manqué', in her Engenderings (London: Routledge, 1993) 245-49.
    • 26 Here one takes Wittgenstein's side. Many of the early remarks in Philosophical Investigations (trans. G.E.M. Anscombe, Oxford: Blackwell, 1976) are designed to free us from the standing temptation to think of language in abstraction from use.
    • 27 I am concerned here with 'strong self-sufficiency' in the sense of Louise Antony's 'Sisters, Please, I'd Rather Do it Myself: A Defense of Individualism in Feminist Epistemology', in Feminist Perspectives, Philosophical Topics 1996. (As Antony's title may suggest, she and I aren't on exactly the same side.)
    • 28 An example would be the practical approach to explaining the concept of knowledge taken in Edward Craig's Knowledge and the State of Nature: An Essay in Conceptual Synthesis (Clarendon Press: Oxford, 1990).
    • 31 See “Free and Equal Speech”, Imprints 1, 2 (1996) 59-76. For the argument as it bears on feminist debate, see J.Hornsby and R. Langton, 'Free Speech and Illocution', Legal Theory 4, 1 (1998) 21-37.
    • 34 For an account of this, and a good discussion, see Susan J. Brison 'Speech, Harm and the Mind-Body Problem' Legal Theory 4, 1 (1998) 39-61.
    • 38 For an account of how much is properly involved in this notion, see my 'Disempowered Speech', where allowance is made for fine-grained individuation of languages, so that sense can be made e.g. of 'dialects'.
