"This is a volume with a guaranteed wide use as a general
reference and also for the discursive and critical strength of the
essays included. Philosophers, cultural and gender studies
specialists, feminists, sociologists and political scientists would
form its most ardent readership." - Notre Dame Philosophical
"This volume explores the exposure of philosophy to various external stimuli and sources of disruption over the past forty years: geo-politics, literary historical innovation, globalisation and techno-scientific transformation. The book resonates with intellectual vigour and the sense of excitement." - Joanna Hodge, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
