Booknews
A collection of 16 essays, deeply influenced by the feminist ethics of philosopher Held, which explore what feminist philosophy can add to contemporary political discourse. The contributions are divided into sections on historical reevaluations; family and race; feminism and social relations; care and morality; and norms, value, and theory. Topics include the relation of care to ethics, a contestation of the notion that emotion is disconnected from reason, the mother-child relationship as a better cultural trope than the social contract, and a pluralistic model of moral justification.
