Divine love : Luce Irigaray, women, gender and religion by Morny Joy( )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Divine love explores the work of Luce Irigaray, one of the most influential and controversial figures in feminist thought. Although Irigaray herself disclaims the term 'feminism', her work stands at the intersection of contemporary debates concerned with culture, gender and religion. However, her ideas have not yet been presented in a comprehensive way from the perspective of Religious Studies. This book is the first to examine the development of religious themes from Irigaray's initial work, Speculum of the Other Woman, to her more recent explorations of eastern religions. Chapters survey Irigaray's interactions with the work of Descartes, Hegel and Levinas, and her ideas on love, the divine, an ethics of sexual difference, and normative heterosexuality are analysed."--Jacket
Women and the gift : beyond the given and all-giving by Morny Joy( )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent inquiries into the concept of the gift have been largely male-dominated and thus have ignored important aspects of the gift from a woman's point of view. In light of philosophical works by Mauss, Levi-Strauss, Derrida, and Bataille, Women and the Gift reflects upon how women react to the notion of the gift and relationships of giving. This collection evaluates and critques previous work on the gift and also responds to how women view care, fidelity, generosity, trust, and independence as they consider the gift
Gender, genre, and religion : feminist reflections by Morny Joy( )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 1,139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many feminists today are challenging the outmoded aspects of both the conventions and the study of religion in radical ways. Canadian feminists are no exception. Gender, Genre and Religion is the outcome of a research network of leading women scholars organized to survey the contribution of Canadian women working in the field of religious studies and, further, to "plot the path forward." This collection of their essays covers most of the major religious traditions and offers exciting suggestions as to how religious traditions will change as women take on more central roles.

Continental philosophy and philosophy of religion by Morny Joy( )

22 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and German and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book that provides access to twelve Continental philosophers and the consequences of their thinking for the philosophy of religion. Basically, in the second half of the twentieth century, it has been treated from within the Anglo- American school of philosophy, which deals mainly with proofs and truths, and questions of faith. This approach is more concerned with human experience, and pays more attention to historical context and cultural influences. As such, it provides challenging questions about the way forward for philosophy of religion in the twenty-first century
After appropriation : explorations in intercultural philosophy and religion by Morny Joy (Editor)( )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While there have been a number of specialized books in the field of comparative philosophy, and many in the field of comparative religion, there are few scholars who can address both disciplines. Furthermore, when these disciplines are virtually mutually exclusive, as in Western academia, a full appreciation of non-Western approaches to either religion or philosophy is not easily attained, and distortions, such as appropriation, often occur. Within the last ten years, there has been a concerted effort on the part of a number of Western scholars to try to address these deficiencies. A unique workshop held at the University of Calgary in 2007 marked the beginning of an interdisciplinary project to bring together scholars from both fields for discussion on a regular basis. After Appropriation consists of thirteen essays stemming from the workshop, each of which addresses an issue or illustrates a problem in the interdisciplinary field of comparative religion and philosophy as it is presently conceived. Many misappropriations and exclusions have arisen from the Western tendency to reduce and manipulate the ideas and values of non-Western religions and philosophies to fit within Western concepts and categories. How might comparative philosophy and religion change if the concepts and categories of non-Western philosophies and religions were taken as primary? This book explores this question through analytic and phenomenological Western approaches, infused with fresh strategies and modalities derived from or inspired by non-Western traditions. In a world of increasing pluralism and continuing globalization, there is a growing need to elevate discussion of these issues to a more sophisticated level. A truly groundbreaking collection, After Appropriation inaugurates an entirely new integrative discipline of comparative religion and philosophy, and the exceptional calibre and wide spectrum of the books scholarship will stimulate and propel further interest in this pivotal and fruitful direction. -- Publisher description

Death and the displacement of beauty by Grace Jantzen( Book )

in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pursuit and love of death has characterized Western culture since Homeric times. Foundations of Violence enters the ancient world of Homer, Plato and Aristotle to explore the genealogy of violence in Western thought. It covers the origins of ideas of death--the "beautiful death" of Homeric heroes-through to the gendered misery of war. Jantzen examines the tensions between those who tried to eliminate fear of death by denying its significance, and those like Plotinus who looked to another world for life and beauty
Women, religion, and the gift an abundance of riches( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and German and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces the special dynamics of women and their close relationships with the gift in both past and contemporary religious settings. Written from a cross-cultural perspective, it challenges depictions of women's roles in religion where they have been relegated to compliance with specifically designated gendered attributes. The different chapters contest the resultant stereotypes that deny women agency. Each chapter describes women as engaged in an aspect of religion, from that of ritual specialists, to benefactors and patrons, or even innovators. The volume examines topics such as sainthood and sacrifice so as to refine these ideas in constructive ways that do not devalue women. It also examines the meaning of the term "gift" today, embracing the term in both figurative and literal ways. Such a collection of diverse women's writings and activities provides a significant contribution to their quest for recognition, and also suggests ways this can be understood and realized today

N this book Grace Jantzen constructs a Quaker spirituality of beauty as a theological-philosophical response to a world preoccupied with death and violence.

This vision is an original and creative feminist reading of the Quaker tradition, considering George Fox and the writings of Quaker women, exploring the themes of inner light and beauty as alternatives to violence and the obstacles
