Subjection & subjectivity : psychoanalytic feminism & moral philosophy by Diana T Meyers( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diana Tietjens Meyers examines the political underpinnings of psychoanalytic feminism, analyzing the relation between the nature of the self and the structure of good societies. She argues that impartial reason--the approach to moral reflection which has dominated 20th-century Anglo-American philosophy--is inadequate for addressing real world injustices. Subjection and Subjectivity is central to feminist thought across a wide range of disciplines

Feminists rethink the self( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How is women's conception of self affected by the caregiving responsibilities traditionally assigned to them and by the personal vulnerabilities imposed on them? If institutions of male dominance profoundly influence women's lives and minds, how can women form judgments about their own best interests and overcome oppression? Can feminist politics survive in face of the diversity of women's experience, which is shaped by race, class, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, as well as by gender? Exploring such questions, leading feminist thinkers have reinvigorated work on the concept of self and personal identity, as demonstrated by the discussions in this insightful volume. The concerns that animate feminist scholarship have prompted feminist philosophers to sideline the theme of individualism and to focus on the theme of intersubjectivity. In conceptualizing the self, the contributors to this volume highlight emotional bonds among people, the stories people tell one another, and the systems of categories and behavioral norms that unite and divide groups of people. Topics addressed include sexual violence and the self, the social self and autonomy, the narrative self and integrity, self-ownership and the body, forgetting yourself and your race, group membership and personal identity, grief and gender, sympathy and women's diversity, emotion and emancipatory epistemology, and dependency and justice. This volume is important reading for students of feminist theory, ethics, and social and political philosophy

Poverty, agency, and human rights by Diana T Meyers( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Poverty, Agency, and Human Rights is a collection of thirteen new essays that analyzes how human agency relates to poverty and human rights respectively as well as how agency mediates issues concerning poverty and social and economic human rights. No other collection of philosophical papers focuses on the diverse ways poverty impacts the agency of the poor, the reasons why poverty alleviation schemes should also promote the agency of beneficiaries, and the fitness of the human rights regime to secure both economic development and free agency"--
Victims' stories and the advancement of human rights by Diana T Meyers( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Victims' Stories and the Advancement of Human Rights' addresses a set of critical topics that victims' stories of human rights abuse raise but that philosophers have thus far neglected: paradigms of victimhood and unjustifiable exclusions from the category of victim; narrative structures as constraints on victims' stories and as vehicles for articulating human rights norms; the role of emotional responses to victims' stories in discerning their normative significance; empathy with victims' stories as a pathway to moral understanding and human rights commitment; and the need for an ethical framework for obtaining victims' stories and for civil society institutions that can disseminate these stories for purposes of advancing human rights
