Description

Feminist philosophy of religion as a subject of study has developed because of the identification and exposure of explicit sexism in much of the traditional philosophical thinking about religion. This struggle with a discipline shaped almost exclusively by men has led feminist philosophers to redress the problematic biases of gender, race, class and sexual orientation of the subject. "Feminist Philosophy of Religion: Critical Readings" brings together key writings on the core topics and approaches to this growing field. Each essay exhibits a distinctive theoretical approach and the readings appropriate insights from the fields of literature, theology, philosophy, gender and cultural studies. Beginning with a general introduction, the first part of the reader explores important approaches to the feminist philosophy of religion, including psychoanalytic, poststructualist, post-metaphysical and epistemological frameworks. In the second part, the authors survey significant topics including questions of divinity, embodiment, autonomy and spirituality, and religious practice. The volume is supported by explanatory prefaces and an extensive bibliography which is organized thematically.
