Editorial Reviews

Review

"Harding's work on standpoint theory has been groundbreaking."
-Alison Jagger, author of "Living with Contradictions: Controversies in Feminist Social Ethics
"Standpoint theory has a very wide impact, from the humanities to the natural sciences.In bringing together a variety of standpoint literatures and demonstrating how important these lines of thought have become, this is a very strong collection."
-Nancy Harstock, Professor of Political Science, University of Washington
"An essential resource for feminist theorists, researchers, women's studies students, and activists alike. This excellent anthology offers a rich interdisciplinary assessment of the impact of feminist standpoint theory in diverse fields and includes responses to postmodern and postcolonial challenges to standpoint epistemology."
-Nancy A. Naples, author of "Feminism and Method
"I can think of no other volume that covers this important area in feminist philosophyso well. It brings together the classics of the past with the best of the present. This is the place to go for standpoint theory."
-Linda Nicholson, author of "The Play of Reason: From the Modern to the Postmodern
""The Feminist Standpoint Theory Reader tracks, translates and augments several decades of classics and au courant contributions to what is perhaps the most significant theoretical discourse developed by interdisciplinary feminist theory."
-Judith Stacey is the author of "Brave New Families: Stories of Domestic Upheaval in Late-Twentieth-Century America
