PHIL 335 Feminist Philosophy and Political Theory

This course will examine the relatively recent, but wide-ranging, complex, and rich field of feminist philosophy. We will study contemporary and historical texts drawn from this emerging and continuing tradition, with a focus on feminist interpretations of the Western philosophical canon, women's experiences of subjectivity and embodiment, and feminist conceptions of language, knowledge, and nature. We will consider a wide range of differing versions of feminist thought, and we may also explore the intersections of feminist philosophy with gender and men's studies.
