The thirteen specially-commissioned essays in this volume are written by philosophers at the forefront of feminist scholarship, and are designed to provide an accessible and stimulating guide to a philosophical literature that has seen massive expansion in recent years. Ranging from history of philosophy through metaphysics to philosophy of science, they encompass all the core subject areas commonly taught in anglophone undergraduate and graduate philosophy courses, offering both an overview of and a contribution to the relevant debates. Together they testify to the intellectual value of feminism as a radicalizing energy internal to philosophical inquiry. This volume will be essential reading for any student or teacher of philosophy who is curious about the place of feminism in their subject.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A splendid set of essays … not only introduces students of analytical philosophy to the riches of feminism, but will also interest and invigorate feminists.' Mind

'This splendid set of essays by thirteen women is a new sort of Cambridge Companion, a companion to a movement in philosophy rather than to one philosopher's work … this is a book which not merely introduces students of analytic philosophy to the riches of feminism but will also interest and invigorate feminists.' Annette Baier

'The book will be a very valuable aid to teaching, since its articles explore the ways in which bodies of feminist work bear upon, elaborate, or criticize the mainstream philosophical views and concepts with which students will be familiar … I highly recommend the Companion as an essential addition for anyone working or teaching in feminist philosophy.' Women's Philosophy Review

'It is an excellent volume of essays.' Hypatia
