PHL 544

Feminist Philosophy

Feminist philosophy engages in critical scrutiny of concepts of sex and gender, and critiques everyday social norms, practices and institutions, relying upon diverse and divergent ethical, political and social theories. This course may explore feminist perspectives on ethics, social and political theory, philosophy of science, epistemology and metaphysics. Concerns include: Are there gendered ways of knowing? How would a gendered analysis affect the understanding of alienation, discrimination, exploitation, oppression and subordination?
