About the Author

Cressida J. Heyes is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Alberta and the author of Line Drawings: Defining Women through Feminist Practice, also from Cornell.


"Heyes gives a good and clear summary of many of the issues that have generated debates about essentialism within feminism. She shows how many of the participants in those debates were prone to forget the political issues affecting the lives of real people."-Alessandra Tanesini, University of Cardiff. Women's Philosophy Review, No. 27, 2001 "Heye's adept application and extension of Wittgenstein's insights to feminism; her lively, enjoyable and accessible writing style, and her philosophical sophistication, should place her at the center of the family of important new feminist theorists."-Claudia Moscovici, Boston University. Canadian Review of Comparative Literature, Vol. 27, No. 3, September 2000 "Cressida Heyes looks at the heart of the feminist debates on the questions of how women are defined, how these definitions arise, and what role these definitions play in feminist issues of race, class, heterosexual privilege, gender oppression, and sexual violence. By focusing on lessons learned from Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations, Heyes constructs an inclusive space for cross-disciplinary conversations about feminist theory, practice, and issues."-Choice, Vol. 38, No. 4, December 2000 "Extraordinarily well written and well argued, Cressida Heyes's book is an engagement with issues of great political urgency and intellectual complexity that manages to be responsive and responsible both to practice and to theory. Heyes manages this complex interrogation with clarity and grace, fair-mindedness and passion, intellectual seriousness and accessibility. Line Drawings is an exciting, promising, and relatively unexplored way of addressing and repairing the often disabling splits between theory and activism."-Naomi Scheman, University of Minnesota "The Surprising Bedfellows Award goes hands down to Cressida Heyes for finding Wittgensteinian routes out of the swamp of the essentialism debates in feminist theory. Elegant, persuasive, politically engaged, Line Drawings will be required reading for many years to come."-Elizabeth V. Spelman, Smith College
