Editorial Reviews


These essays challenge, unsettle and stretch philosophic and feminist assumptions, including Anglo-American, Continental and `Southern' legacies in both fields. Powerful new voices join widely acclaimed scholars in lively debates and discussions about issues that all of us will have to resolve. What others see as problematic tensions between Enlightenment and postmodernist approaches to knowers, knowing and knowledge, these thinkers turn into valuable resources for the next moment in global dialogues. This is an immensely exciting collection.
–Sandra Harding, University of Delaware

This is an exciting collection of papers that will open up the field of work in feminist epistemologies beyond the current terms of debate . . . The anthology as a whole works to bridge the existing gap between the philosophical discussions among postmodernists and among feminist epistemologists.
–Linda Alcoff, Syracuse University

These diverse and innovative essays work creatively within the tensions that feminist epistemologies have to negotiate now that issues of accountability, power, specificity, language and agency are as urgent as the once-pivotal questions about disinterested knowledge and truth.
–Lorraine Code, York University, Canada
