Feminist Thought: Androcentrism, Communication and Objectivity

Shefali Moitra (Author)
Synopsis Feminist Thought situates the gender debate inside philosophy. The perceived gender neutrality of philosophy has been critiqued. Consequently the implications of radicalizing philosophy from a gender perspective are assessed. The book introduces the notion of gender and its relation to androcentrism or male-centred virtues. An exposition of the various ways in which gender may enter conceptual schemes, logic and objectivity is given. In the course of providing an overview of contemporary debates the author has made seminal contributions. Her imaginative account of an alternative mode of communication deserves serious attention. This book will be indispensable to students and teachers who are eager to know the locations of gender in philosophy and also for those who want to ponder upon possible ways of eradicating gender bias from theory.
