Feminist philosophy of religion has developed in recent years because of the exposure of explicit sexism in much traditional philosophical thinking about religion. The struggle with a discipline shaped almost exclusively by men has led feminist philosophers to redress the problematic biases of gender, race, class and sexual orientation in the traditional subject.
Feminist Philosophy of Religion: Critical Readings brings together key new writings in this growing field. Part one of the reader explores important approaches to the feminist philosophy of religion, including psychoanalytic, poststructualist, postmetaphysical and epistemological frameworks. In part two, the contributors survey significant topics including questions of divinity, embodiment, spirituality and religious practice. Supported by explanatory prefaces and an extensive bibliography, Feminist Philosophy of Religion: Critical Readings is an important resource for this new area of study.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Pamela Sue Anderson and Beverley Clack have worked a miracle in getting so many of the most notable writers in feminist philosophy of religion around the literary equivalent of the dinner table. The collection gives a wonderful insight into the creative thinking which is going on into the important questions being raised, into the common themes and important disagreements being shared between and among these women.' - Susan Durber, S Columba's URC, Oxford

'Contrary to most books on philosophy of religion, this volume takes into account the recurring practices of most everyday women and considers them in relationship with efforts to lead a spiritual life. Here Janet Soskice's article is illuminating (and witty), as is Amy Hollywood's discussion of the constitutive power of bodily practice.' - Yearbook of the European Society of Women in Theological Research

'The most important publication in the field of feminist philosophy and theology this year ... an extremely timely and welcome book that will fill a significant gap for the many lecturers and students working in the area.' - Critical and Cultural Theory
