About the Author

Claudia Card, professor of philosophy at the University of Wisconsin, is the author of Lesbian Choices and The Unnatural Lottery: Character and Moral Luck and the editor of On Feminist Ethics and Politics.


Fifteen authors here discuss the ramifications of radical feminist theory on ethical issues and systems. The result, which embraces scholarly dissertations on particular subjects (e.g., terrorism) and personal narratives on culture (e.g., white heterosexualism), is an extremely uneven collection in depth, scope, and style. The contributors are mostly philosophy teachers, and there is a distinct focus on the status of ethical thinking as colored by lesbian experience in contemporary U.S. culture. While a few of the essays are engaging (including those by Joyce Trebilcot, Lynne McFall, and Annette C. Baier), others seem limited to those already in full sympathy with their convictions. For special collections and graduate philosophy students.-- Francisca Goldsmith, Berkeley P.L., Cal.

This fine collection represents the breadth and diversity of work being done at the intersection of feminism and ethics.--Religious Studies ReviewThis is a valuable collection that should be useful to established workers in the field as well as those looking for research topics. At the same time, the essays stand on their own and maintain a high level of clarity, which should make them accessible to the general undergraduate reader.--EthicsAn accessible, well-written, stimulating volume ideal for both mainstream moral philosophy courses and women's studies courses.--Teaching PhilosophyThe best single collection on the nature, current state, and implications of feminist ethics.--Australian Journal of Philosophy
