Overview

This ground-breaking collection is the first to focus on the exclusively philosophical aspects of ecological feminism. It addresses basic questions about the conceptual underpinnings of ``women-nature connections'' and emphasizes the importance of seeing sexism and the exploitation of the environment as parallel forms of domination. The book addresses basic questions of conceptual analysis and justification concerning ecofeminism and its philosophical underpinnings. The essays discuss: whether all ecofeminist positions can be considered feminist; what obstacles must be overcome for the serious maturing of ecofeminist philosophy; how ecofeminist philosophy is distinctive among feminisms; environmental philosophies and environmental activism; and what ecofeminist philosophy adds to the field of evironmental philosophy. The book includes contributors who are both supportive and critical of ecofeminist positions.
