Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here feminist philosophers and ecofeminist scholars pursue the connections between

feminism and environmentalism. Topics include the ecofeminist ethic; the role of

patriarchal concepts in perpetuating the domination of women and nature; the

grassroots origins and character of a thoughtful ecofeminism; the "ecofeminism-deep

ecology debate" in environmental philosophy; deep ecological treatment of animal

rights and the omission of ecofeminist analyses of the domination of animals, abortion, and nuclear deterrence;

and ways ecofeminism and the science of ecology are or could be engaged in complementary, supportive projects.

The contributors are Carol J. Adams, Carol H. Cantrell, Jim Cheney, Chris Cuomo, Deane Curtin, Victoria Davion, Roger J. H. King, Stephanie Lahar, Patricia Jagentowicz Mills, Patrick D. Murphy, Val Plumwood, Catherine Roach, Robert Sessions, Deborah Slicer, and Karen J. Warren.
