Moral Understandings: Alternative "Epistemology" for a Feminist Ethics

Hypatia 4 (2):15 - 28 (1989)

Work on representing women's voices in ethics has produced a vision of moral understanding profoundly subversive of the traditional philosophical conception of moral knowledge. I explicate this alternative moral "epistemology," identify how it challenges the prevailing view, and indicate some of its resources for a liberatory feminist critique of philosophical ethics.
