Editorial Reviews


Never before has an 'introduction' to feminist philosophy accomplished so much. In addition to providing a clear delineation of the contributions of feminist philosophy to ethics, epistemology, and the history of philosophy, Schott documents the centrality of feminist philosophy to the future of philosophy at large. This book will be indispensable for introducing scholars and students alike to the power and promise of feminist philosophy. (Nancy Tuana, Editor, NEWSLETTER ON FEMINISM AND PHILOSOPHY)

Robin Schott shows us the ways in which feminist interventions in interpreting the philosophical tradition and feminist analyses of oppression, subjectivity, and recognition are central to the philosophical tasks of our times. (Debra Bergoffen, George Mason University)

This book offers much more than an engaging, accessible introduction into the main debates in feminist philosophy. It shows that a critical encounter between philosophy and feminism is vital not only for the reflection on the politics of knowledge but also for the future of philosophy. (Ewa Ziarek, University of Notre Dame)

This is the best general introduction to feminist philosophy in print. It remains accessible throughout without simplifying the issues. Schott provides a balanced approach to the internal debates as well as a clarification for those outside the field about how feminist philosophy relates to philosophy. Schott is a top-notch philosopher which makes her feminism especially thoughtful and carefully argued. (Linda Martín Alcoff, Hunter College)

This book challenges irrational, hostile, and even 'histerical' reactions to feminist philosophy from those in the mainstream of the profession. From her perspective as a migrant philosopher, Schott demonstrates the importance of feminist theorizing to a range of philosophical and broad intellectual debates. Schott’s outsider's critique of academic philosophy should be read by outsiders and insiders, feminists and anti-feminists, and all students of philosophy who think the field should concern itself with the most urgent and difficult questions facing societies today. (Laurie Shrage, California State Polytechnic University)

This excellent and highly readable introduction to European and American feminist philosophy includes, as a special highlight, an extensive and in-depth discussion of ethical issues presented by war rape and other violence against women. Schott's book will engage students, young and old, of a wide variety of backgrounds, and offer a solid orientation in the history, current issues, and future directions of feminist philosophy. (Claudia Card, University of Wisconsin-Madison)

"In this compelling and powerfully written book, Robin May Schott not only explains the many ways feminist theorists have transformed philosophical thought, but also carries out important new transformations of her own. This book should be required reading for everyone doing philosophy." (Susan J. Brison, author of Aftermath: Violence and the Remaking of a Self)

Discovering Feminist Philosophy is an engaging introduction to western feminist philosophy for the novice and seasoned philosopher alike. Schott clearly articulates the philosophical and intellectual importance of feminist thought as well as its practical applications in our complex and unequal world. (Michael Knox, OCWW)

Robin Schott's Discovering Feminist Philosophy: Knowledge, Ethics, Politics provides an eminently accessible introduction and analysis of Continental and Anglo-American feminist theory while at the same time developing new insights in femininst ethics. (Nancy McHugh, Wittenberg University H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online)

Schott successfully argues that the marginalization of feminist philosophy is an issue not only for feminist or women philosophers. Indeed all philosophers with any interest in the development of their field need to stand up against unnecessary prejudices and orientate themselves in the core issues of the feminist debates. (Sats - Nordic Journal Of Philosophy)
