9 Feminist Philosophy Levac TuWTh 1-3:30 Dwinelle 263

This course is an introduction to issues in feminist philosophy. We’ll consider such questions as the following: What is gender, and what ought it to be? How does sexism intersect with other forms of oppression? How do gendered dynamics affect our capacities to act, speak, and know? In the process, we’ll work out for ourselves what it is for an inquiry to be feminist, philosophical, or both at once. We’ll also become acquainted with a number of philosophical subdisciplines, among them epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of language, and phenomenology.
