Feminist Experiences develops and defends a distinctive understanding of feminist philosophy as social critique. Feminist philosophy is essentially a political endeavor, Johanna Oksala argues, aiming to expose, analyze, and ultimately change gendered power relations. However, such an understanding of feminist philosophy raises a host of theoretical problems and paradoxes. Oksala investigates the philosophical challenges and outlines the ontological presuppositions and methodological innovations the project requires.

Drawing on conceptual tools from the thought of Michel Foucault, but also from the tradition of phenomenology, she explores the role of experience in feminist philosophy and its relationship to language and linguistic meaning. Oksala concludes by sketching a feminist ontology of the present through a critical investigation of neoliberalism and the challenges it presents to feminist theory and politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In her vigorously argued and innovative new book, Oksala reconsiders the relation between experience and language in feminist metaphysics, feminist phenomenology and feminist political thought, and stakes out, from within phenomenology, a post-phenomenological position through insightful, against-the-grain readings and significant critiques of Husserl, Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty. It is a crucial addition to long-standing debates in feminist theory, and invaluable for helping to bring phenomenology into the 21st century." Gayle Salamon, author ofAssuming a Body: Transgender and Rhetorics of Materiality"
