Towards a Feminist Reassessment of Intellectual Virtue

Hypatia 5 (3):1 - 14 (1990)
Abstract
This paper presents an argument for reconceptualizing (human) intelligence as intellectual virtue, and makes some proposals as to how we would understand intellectual virtue if feminist values were taken into account. Several abilities are identified which are closely connected to one aim that is common to most feminists: the building of communities in which well-being is possible.
