Reviews - What do customers think about A Companion to Feminist Philosophy (Blackwell Companions to Philosophy)?
Excellent collection of articles on/in feminist philosophy Aug 4, 2004
This is by far the best Blackwell Companion to Philosophy I have seen, and I've read through quite a few of them. Jaggar and Young have edited a masterpiece which will someday be seen as a classic in the fields of philosophy, gender studies, and feminist thought.
I will be using many of the articles from this anthology in my Philosophy of Woman undergraduate course, as experts introduce the specific field (e.g., "Racism," "Body Politics," etc.) with clear language and a panoramic scope of the issues and debates considered.
