Overview

This impressive collection of previously unpublished essays examines the relation among competing understandings of "nature," "woman," and the "artifice" of politics. By looking historically and comprehensively at the problems and questions associated with human thinking about nature, woman, and politics, the contributors strive to gain the proper vantage point from which to assess modern virtues and vices. Also taking note of important religious and literary contributions to thought on nature and woman, these essays present a broad range of claims from classical Greece to the present intended to stimulate modem thinking. Nature, Woman, and the Artifice of Politics will prove indispensable to scholars of philosophy, political science and women's studies.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Provides a close and thoughtful examination of important texts. The arguments made are persuasive and demonstrate that the 'dead white male' was perhaps not the patriarch we may have believed.
American Political Science Review
Whether one agrees or disagrees, the arguments presented are wide-ranging and thought provoking. ... Should be required reading for anyone exploring the basis and implications of sex and gender for human social relations and political order
Political Theory
This collection does serve to bring together a wide variety of positions.
