Prerequisite: PHIL 2010 or PHIL 1001

The aim of this course is to examine critically the central arguments of various feminist theories; to explore what it means to have a feminist approach to philosophical problems of epistemology, identity, morality, freedom, and human nature; to identify the presuppositions of theories; and to recognize the problematic principles of essentialism and exclusion from a more informed standpoint.
