Expanded Course Description
Since the publication of Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex in 1949, a burgeoning interest in gendered power and sexual difference has produced a wealth of feminist thinking in every area of philosophical inquiry, and across the disciplines. Yet philosophy remains by far the most male dominated field in the humanities. Even so, those who are philosophers and "outsiders" to this tradition find that the discipline of philosophy prepares us to ask the questions we need to ask and address the problems that we confront–even as we also find that we transform philosophy in the process. How does feminist thinking both appropriate and change the practice of philosophy? What questions are opened up by feminist philosophical inquiry that are not opened by more traditional approaches? How does feminist philosophy invite us to challenge some of our most deeply held assumptions about what men and women are? These are just some of the questions we will explore in this course designed to satisfy Arts & Letters group and Identity, Pluralism, & Tolerance MC category.
