Feminism and emotion : readings in moral and political philosophy by Susan Mendus( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Susan Mendus argues for the importance of emotion in general, and love in particular, to moral and political philosophy. The opening chapters aim to show that, far from being suspicious of love, some of the central philosophers of the enlightenment were, in fact, committed to a moralized conception of it. Subsequent chapters investigate the significance which a moralized conception of love can have for both modern moral philosophy and modern political philosophy. However, the author argues that this significance is not the one implicit in feminist care theory. Feminism's insights arise from its recognition of human vulnerability, not from its attribution of special and distinctive qualities to women. By combining the insights of enlightenment thinking and feminist theory, Professor Mendus provides a new understanding of the significance of love for modern philosophy."--Jacket
Politics and morality by Susan Mendus( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Toleration, identity, and difference( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this discussion of the problems of toleration which arise in multi-cultural and multi-racial society, the authors focus their attention on the conflicts which can occur between minority cultures and the dominant society. They raise questions about the role of group membership in the formation of individual identity, the tensions which may arise between individual identity and allegiance to the group, and the possibility of resolving those tensions through dialogue. Taken as a whole, the collection aims to explore the justification of toleration in modern liberal political theory, and to investigate the implications of that theory for political practice. This collection of essays arises from a conference on toleration and difference held under the auspices of the Morrell Studies Programme at the University of York."--Jacket
