Feminist-Pragmatist Revisionings of Reason, Knowledge, and Philosophy

Hypatia 8 (2):15 - 37 (1993)
  Copy   BIBTEX


By tracing a specific development through the approaches of Peirce, James, and Dewey I present a view of (classical) pragmatist epistemology that invites comparison with recent work in feminist epistemology. Important dimensions of pragmatism and feminism emerge from this critical dialectical relationship between them. Pragmatist reflections on the role of reason and philosophy in a changing world encourage us to see that philosophy's most creative and most responsible future must also be a feminist one.
