PHI 383W - Gender, Knowledge, and Values

Course Cross-listed with GS 383W 
3 credit(s) Writing Intensive
Philosophy is an ongoing process both of criticism and of construction. In this course we critically examine how the different branches of philosophy—ethics, aesthetics, epistemology, metaphysics, and others—have been inadvertently impoverished by being grounded largely in male experience. We study a rich variety of constructive moves toward a philosophy more engaged with the experience of all human beings. These moves toward gender inclusiveness in philosophy have been made by feminist philosophers and others who have recognized the influence of gender on philosophical criticism and (re)construction.
Prerequisite(s): GS 100  or PHI 110 , and junior or senior standing; or permission of instructor.
