Feminism as Radical Humanism

£8.99

Product description

Feminism is currently at an impasse. Both the liberation feminism of the 1970's and the more recent feminism of difference are increasingly faced with the limitations of their own perspectives. While feminists today generally acknowledge the need to recognise diversity, they lack a coherent framework through which this need can be articulated.
In Feminism as Radical Humanism, Pauline Johnson calls for a reassessment of feminism's relationship to modern humanism. She argues that despite its very thorough and necessary critique of mainstream formulations of humanist ideals, feminism itself remains strongly to humanist values.
Drawing on a broad range of political and intellectual traditions, Johnson demonstrates that, by only by proudly affirming its own humanist commitments can feminist theory find a way to negotiate the impasse in which it currently finds itself.
Feminism as Radical Humanism an important and controversial contribution to feminist theory, and to the ongoing debate about the meaning of contemporary humanism.
