Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Continues the already extensive series of feminist readings of major philosophers in the western tradition by looking at the work of Descartes (1596-1650) the articulator of much modernist thought. The 14 essays examine reason as attainment, postmodern turns against the Cartesian subject, radical doubt and the liberation of women, Cartesian autobiography and post-Cartesian testimonials, and other topics. The collection is intended to complement the standard introductory undergraduate texts. Paper edition (unseen), $19.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
From the Publisher
