Philosophical Topics in Feminism

Detailed examination of questions raised by recent feminist scholarship in particular areas of philosophy, such as political theory, ethics, epistemology, or philosophy of science. Emphasis varies.

Class description

This course will look at how feminist philosophy has critiqued traditional moral and political theory and practice in regard to the family. In so doing, we will rethink concepts such as autonomy and justice as we examine the issues of marriage, reproduction, child-rearing and domestic work. One prior course in philosophy recommended.
