Editorial Reviews

Review

The editors introduction is a luscious piece of feminist scholarship that mirrors the individual authors attention to Mary Daly's call for creating oneself through appropriation of language and use of metaphor. Further, Hoagland and Frye's introduction gives readers an insightful, insider's glimpse into feminism's internal debate about diversity and inclusivity. --S. Martinelli-Fernandez, Choice

The anthology reflects the depth, breadth, and process of Daly's writings, demonstrating that her thinking continues to transform and spiral in novel ways. In this way its very form functions as a counter argument to the critiques of Daly as an essentialist. Hoagland and Frye have put together an excellent text that every college library and women s studies office should own. --Helene Tallon Russell, Religious Studies Review

Feminist Interpretations of Mary Daly provides a thought-provoking collection of writings on one of the most influential and controversial radical feminist thinkers. The contributors to this anthology discuss a wide range of topics, considering Daly as theologian, linguist, ontologist, (meta)ethicist, and epistemologist. --Carol Quinn, Philosophy in Review

Sarah Hoagland and Marilyn Frye's new anthology, Feminist Interpretations of Mary Daly is a self-proclaimed "open-ended journey" into Daly's philosophy and the very patriarchal canon she resists. Like some of the earlier Re-reading the Canon volumes, which situate women thinkers into a canon crafted to exclude them, this volume (with purposeful irony) places Daly "into the very canon which she herself has argued is a branch of patriarchal religion grounded in the dismemberment of the Goddess, and which her work is dedicated to undermining by means of animating women's possibilities."(2) In the same breath this collection places Daly in a rapidly emerging feminist canon that continues to distance itself from the radical feminism of the 1960s-70s. Viewing Radical Feminism as framework in progress, and not as an eight year experiment that ultimately failed, reveals uncharted territories and new possibilities for projects grounded in Daly's work. This collection takes the first steps into this newly imagined territory. Whether Daly's work changed/saved your life-- or, like me, you never read her closely because the word on the academic streets was that she had nothing serious to offer-this volume will forever change the way you think about one of the most prolific feminist writers of our time. For Daly scholars this anthology is filled with suggestions for new research projects. Daly skeptics will find unexpected interest in the daring and creative applications of her ideas to third wave feminist conversations. In any case, the collection brings together enough innovative re-readings of Daly's work to safely predict a renewed interest in her systematic philosophy, if not a renaissance in Daly scholarship.

People are always condemning the Dalyites for their "separatism," but my feeling is that they couldn't be separate enough. Well, maybe on Neptune. The far side.
