By Deborah K. Heikes

Feminist philosophers were probably the most vocal critics of cause and rationality. whereas so much feminists discover that rationality is an idea that can not be solely deserted, few have thought of tips on how to build a favorable account of rationality.

This publication represents a sustained argument for a feminist concept of rationality. It opens by means of asking the query: is cause inherently masculine? Deborah okay. Heikes is going directly to solution this question negatively and to ascertain what feminists really wish from a conception of rationality, specifying what a advantage thought of rationality is and the way it really works. She identifies these good points that feminists think are vital to cause, determining 4 dichotomies which are significant to feminist considering (mind/body, reason/emotion, identity/difference, objectivity/subjectivity), and argues that they are often captured through conceiving of rationality as a advantage proposal. She extra demonstrates how a particularly feminist thought of rationality supplies target grounds for feminists' ethical, political and epistemic agendas.
