  1. Between Feminism and Materialism: A Question of Method.Gillian Howie - 2010 - Palgrave-Macmillan.
    Between Feminism and Materialism is a bold attempt to make sense of the relationship between feminist theory and capitalism. Addressing a number of philosophical problems that have engaged feminists over the last few decades--universals and reason, nature and essentialism, identity and non-identity, sex and gender, power and patriarchy, local and global--this innovative book breaks through feminist waves and explains the paradoxes of feminist theory by demonstrating the on-going relevance of dialectics and the concepts of exploitation, ideology, and reification. Drawing on (...)

    Becoming-Woman: A Flight Into Abstraction.Gillian Howie - 2008 - Deleuze and Guatarri Studies 2 (Suppl):83-106.
    In this paper I argue that the idea ‘becoming-woman’ is an attempt to transform embodied experience but, because it is unable to concern itself with mechanisms, structures and processes of sexual differentiation, fails in this task. In the first section I elaborate the relationship between becoming-woman and Deleuze's ‘superior’ or ‘transcendental’ empiricism and suggest that problems can be traced back to an underlying Humean empiricism. Along with Hume, Deleuze, it seems, presumes a bundle model of the object which dissolves things (...)

    Nonidentity, Negative Experience and the Pre‐Reflective Cogito.Gillian Howie - 2015 - European Journal of Philosophy 23 (3):589-607.
    This paper contributes to the current academic debate on the nature of embodied, intentional consciousness, specifically the attempt to inaugurate a rapprochement between phenomenological existentialism and critical theory. This is accomplished through a critical comparison of the concepts of negative experience and nonidentity in Theodor Adorno's negative dialectics and Jean-Paul Sartre's early phenomenology. By comparing how each engages with Hegel, I suggest that Sartre offers a broad, anthropological account of negative experience and nonidentity helpful to critical theorists but that there (...)

    Real Essences and Natural Kinds in Feminist Theory: A Revisionist Account.Gillian Howie - 2006 - Contemporary Political Theory 5 (3):238-258.
    This paper examines the problem of natural kinds, a key problem within feminist theory, and argues for a non-instrumental realist account of group identity. I suggest that a reconstructed theory of essence helps to make sense of group membership because it combines a conventional account of groups with a realist commitment to there being something responsible for the appearance of regularities in the world. The claim that natural kind membership is a matter of similarity relationships manages to avoid metaphysical, universal (...)

    Alienation and Therapy in Existentialism: A Dual Model of Recognition. [REVIEW]Gillian Howie - 2014 - Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 17 (1):55-69.
    Many philosopers and social theorists pursue the notion that recognition is a fruitful framework for engaging with a social analysis of moral and political life, and – more critically – that the failure of recognition is a feature of alienation. This article argues that the thrust of these arguments can be properly attuned by deploying a dual model of recognition that draws especially on Sartre’s work. Where there is struggle for recognition between subjects, the object of struggle is not the (...)

  10. Deleuze and Spinoza: Aura of Expressionism.Gillian Howie - 2002 - Palgrave.
    Expressionism, Deleuze's philosophical commentary on Spinoza, is a critically important work because its conclusions provide the foundations for Deleuze's later metaphysical speculations on the nature of power, the body, difference and singularities. Deleuze and Spinoza is the first book to examine Deleuze's philosophical assessment of Spinoza and appraise his arguments concerning the Absolute, the philosophy of mind, epistemology and moral and political philosophy. The author respects and disagrees with Deleuze the philosopher and suggests that his arguments not only lead to (...)

  11. Gender, Teaching, and Research in Higher Education Challenges for the 21st Century.Gillian Howie & Ashley Tauchert - 2001
  12. Teaching Philosophy.Gillian Howie, Michael Mcghee, Phil Hutchinson, Michael Loughlin, Richard Shusterman & William Edelglass - 2009 - Continuum.
    In the current academic climate, teaching is often seen as secondary to research. Teaching Philosophy seeks to bring teaching philosophy higher on the academic agenda.An international team of contributors, all of whom share the view that philosophy is a subject that can transform students, offers practical guidance and advice for teachers of philosophy. The book suggests ways in which the teaching of philosophy at undergraduate level might be facilitated. Some of the essays place the emphasis on individual self discovery, others (...)
