PHILOSOPHY & FEMINISM
Feminist philosophy became a major voice in the twentieth-century,
challenging many traditional views in areas as diverse as politics,
ethics, aesthetics, and the theory of knowledge. Drawing primarily on
writings by women, the major developments of feminist thought will be
studied. The relation of feminism to other contemporary philosophical
movements such as Marxism, Pragmatism, Existentialism, and
Post-Modernism will also be considered.
