Reviews

'A splendid set of essays ... not only introduces students of analytical philosophy to the riches of feminism, but will also interest and invigorate feminists.' Mind 'This splendid set of essays by thirteen women is a new sort of Cambridge Companion, a companion to a movement in philosophy rather than to one philosopher's work ... this is a book which not merely introduces students of analytic philosophy to the riches of feminism but will also interest and invigorate feminists.' Annette Baier 'The book will be a very valuable aid to teaching, since its articles explore the ways in which bodies of feminist work bear upon, elaborate, or criticize the mainstream philosophical views and concepts with which students will be familiar ... I highly recommend the Companion as an essential addition for anyone working or teaching in feminist philosophy.' Women's Philosophy Review 'It is an excellent volume of essays.' Hypatia
