    Rational Woman: A Feminist Critique of Dichotomy.Raia Prokhovnik - 2002 - Distributed Exclusively in the Usa by Palgrave.
    This book is a comprehensive, analytical study of the way the mind/body dichotomy has perpetuated social hierarchy on the basis of gender. It challenges the tradition of dualism and argues that the term “rational woman” is not a contradiction in terms. Having investigated the two major dualisms contained in the term “rational woman”, the author develops an argument for a new relational conception of all the terms involved in “rational woman”, emphasizing the relationship of interdependence of reason and emotion, man (...)

  2. Spinoza and Republicanism.Raia Prokhovnik - 2004 - Palgrave-Macmillan.
    In this book, Spinoza's political theory is examined through an analysis of his engagement with the practical politics of his day in the United Provinces. 17th-century Dutch history, political life and political thought, and in particular Dutch republicanism, represent an important context in which to discuss Spinoza's political philosophy. The significance of Spinoza's republicanism is highlighted in a comparison with English political thought and its presuppositions in the 17th century.

    The Aporia of Practical Reason: Reflections on What It Means to Pay Due Respect to Others.Raia Prokhovnik - 2011 - Contemporary Political Theory 10 (1):58-77.
    This article investigates the forms of respect and responsiveness that must be present in the process of practical reason. Drawing upon Jürgen Habermas ’ discourse theory and his incidental remarks about aesthetics, I identify two modes of respect. The first is the mutual respect and equality that emerges in the process of coming to agreement on proposed norms ; the second is the call to infinite responsibility that emerges in opening to the transcendent character of others. However, Habermas makes an (...)

    Hobbes's Artifice as Social Construction.Raia Prokhovnik - 2005 - Hobbes Studies 18 (1):74-95.
    The paper argues that Leviathan can be interpreted as employing a constructionist approach in several important respects. It takes issue with commentators who think that, if for Hobbes man is not naturally social, then man must be naturally unsocial or naturally purely individual. First, Hobbes's key conceptions of the role of artifice and nature-artifice relations are identified, and uncontroversially constructionist elements outlined, most notably Hobbes's conceptualisation of the covenant. The significance of crucial distinctions in Leviathan, between the civil and the (...)

    Spinoza's Conception of Sovereignty.Raia Prokhovnik - 2001 - History of European Ideas 27 (3):289-306.
    The article argues that Spinoza's principle of political order represents a conception of sovereignty which is both historically intelligible and analytically coherent.The appropriateness of four meanings of sovereignty to Spinoza's political theory is considered. Then, after examining Spinoza's use of Hobbes's still influential touchstone for the modern theory of sovereignty, Spinoza's conception is discussed in the light of the role that customary practice and republicanism play in his political theory. The analysis of sovereignty also prompts engagement with a range of (...)
