||Feminist philosophy of mind is the practice of using feminist philosophies and methodologies to solve
problems in traditional philosophy of mind and vice versa. A feminist approach asks us to consider the ways that placing different kinds of bodies at the
center of philosophical analysis alters our traditional accounts of
phenomena such as perception, intentionality, emotion, and consciousness. Classic topics in feminist philosophy of mind include the mind-body problem and its relation to male/female and woman/man dichotomies, analyses of racist and sexist perception such as colonizing gazes and sexist objectification, studies of the relations between specific emotions and sex or gender, and examinations of liberatory modes of consciousness such as mindfulness and consciousness-raising. An additional way to think about this philosophical category is that it involves the practice of making philosophy of mind more rigorous by casting a wider net and approaching its problems with a feminist lens.
