Overview

Twelve original essays from feminist philosophers explore some of the many questions raised in the study of moral psychology. The volume opens with a discussion of what happens in a society when terrorist acts destroy people's sense of basal security . Other contributions include, for example, a refutation of the theory that women prefer social roles and occupations that make lower demands on their capacities, and an examination of the effects of assigning moral responsibility to those individuals who maintain oppressive systems.
