Profile: Marilyn Frye (Michigan State University)
  1. The Politics of Reality: Essays in Feminist Theory.Marilyn Frye - 1983 - The Crossing Press.
    Marilyn Frye's first book, The Politics of Reality: Essays in Feminist Theory, presents nine philosophical lectures: four on women's subordination, four on resistance and rebellion, one on revolution. Its approach combines a lesbian perspective with analytical philosophy of language. The major contributions of the book are its analysis of oppression, highly suggestive discussions of the roles of attention in knowledge and ignorance and in arrogance and love, a defense of political separatism not based on female supremacism, and a development of (...)

Jaggar, Alison Kafer, Jean Keller, Sarah Clark Miller, Michele Moody-Adams, Lisa Tessman & Shelley Wilcox - 2005 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    This collection breaks new ground in four key areas of feminist social thought: the sex/gender debates; challenges to liberalism/equality; feminist ethics; and feminist perspectives on global ethics and politics in the 21st century. Altogether, the essays provide an innovative look at feminist philosophy while making substantive contributions to current debates in gender theory, ethics, and political thought.

    Categories in Distress.Marilyn Frye - 2005 - In Barbara S. Andrew, Jean Clare Keller & Lisa H. Schwartzman (eds.), Feminist Interventions in Ethics and Politics: Feminist Ethics and Social Theory. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. pp. 41--58.
    Images of species, sets, and containers, combined with an obsolete positivist theory of meaning and a curiously illogical interpretation of a structuralist understanding of meaning, together have driven feminists and their critics to find unavoidable essentialism and binary totalism in feminist theorists' use of the category WOMEN. This paper provides and explores enriched imagination for how categories can be structured internally and in relations to other categories—what social categories may be and how they work--and proposes that we need to think (...)

    Metaphors of Being a Φ.Marilyn Frye - 2011 - In Charlotte Witt (ed.), Feminist Metaphysics. New York, USA: Springer Verlag. pp. 85-95.
    The category WOMEN has been very troubled in feminist theory and philosophy. In the background of the trouble is the metaphoric image of a social category as a set and its exemplars as set members. That is an inappropriate metaphor for the category WOMEN. Some have turned to Wittgenstein's metaphors: a spun thread and family resemblance. "Family resemblance" is explored here using the work of cognitive psychologists Rosch and Mervis on categories that have prototype structure. Since the family resemblance metaphor (...)

    Review: A Response to "Lesbian Ethics". [REVIEW]Marilyn Frye - 1990 - Hypatia 5 (3):132 - 137.
    Lesbian Ethics seems to address a need for an alternative to heteropatriarchal ethics. That need appears to have two suspect sources: a concept of agency which requires that agents know what is right; and a notion women may have that by being "good" we can escape the degraded status of females and achieve a status of citizeness, or honorary male. Instead of providing such an ethic, the book may show us how to live without it.

  18. Feminist Interpretations of Mary Daly.Sarah Lucia Hoagland & Marilyn Frye (eds.) - 2000 - Pennsylvania State University Press.
    This open-ended anthology is a journey into the very canon that Mary Daly has argued to be patriarchal and demeaning to women. This volume deauthorizes the official canon of Western philosophy and disrupts a related story told by some feminists who claim that Daly’s work is unworthy of re-reading because it contains fatal errors. The editors and contributors attempt to prove that Mary Daly is located in the Western intellectual tradition. Daly may be highly critical of conventional Western epistemological and (...)
