Bartky draws on the experience of daily life to unmask the many disguises by which intimations of inferiority are visited upon women. She critiques both the male bias of current theory and the debilitating dominion held by notions of "proper femininity" over women and their bodies in patriarchal culture.

In Zeiten, die sich durch eine "postfeministische" Konstellation und zunehmenden Antifeminismus auszeichnen, verweist der Band auf vielfältige Räume und Praxen feministischer (Dauer-)Kämpfe. Die Autor*innen diskutieren geschlechterpolitische Kontinuitäten, Brüche und Widersprüchlichkeiten im Kontext der multiplen Krise und der Autoritarisierung von Staat und Gesellschaft. Ebenso werden feministische Strategien gegen Unterdrückung, Ungleichheit und Gewalt sowie Suchbewegungen für eine andere gesellschaftliche Ordnung aufgezeigt. So zeichnet der Band ein facettenreiches Bild feministischer Gegenwartsdiagnosen.

Nick Hornby nennt sie sein »Vorbild und die beste amerikanische Schriftstellerin ihrer Generation«. Ein Sommer voller Aufbruchssehnsucht, ersten Flirts, gegenseitigen Bekenntnissen. Sils und Berie arbeiten in »Storyland« - einem Märchen-Vergnügungspark - wobei die hübsche Sils als Cinderella die Besucher bezaubert. Berie hingegen ist die Kluge, eine linkische Froschkönigin, die Sils vor falschen Prinzen bewahrt. Auch wenn man ahnt, dass diese Freundschaft nicht bestehen wird, so wird sie doch jene sein, die Berie in ihrem Herzen bewahrt, wie die Erinnerung an das Mädchen, das man einmal war und nie wieder sein wird.

Mit einem aktuellen Vorwort zur Neuausgabe! Auf John Locke geht die Vorstellung zurück, der Mensch sei ein leeres Blatt, auf dem im Verlauf des Lebens die persönlichen Erfahrungen eingetragen werden. In seinem mittlerweile klassischen Buch »Das unbeschriebene Blatt. Die moderne Leugnung der menschlichen Natur« bezieht Bestseller-Autor Steven Pinker ganz die Gegenposition: Mit Witz, Brillanz und Gelehrsamkeit analysiert er die Geschichte dieser Idee und zeigt, wie falsch sie ist – mit allen kruden Auswirkungen auf Vorstellungen von Sexualität, Rasse, Kindererziehung, Intelligenz usw. Die Rolle der Gene wird systematisch unterschätzt; aber das bedeutet nicht, dass wir ihnen völlig ausgeliefert sind. Pinker zeigt nämlich auch, wie befreiend diese Sichtweise sein kann. Ein unterhaltsames und anschauliches Buch zur Natur des Menschen, ein echter Lesegenuss.

Iris Murdoch was one of the best-known philosophers and novelists of the post-war period. In this book, Sabina Lovibond explores the tangled issue of Murdoch's stance towards gender and feminism, drawing upon the evidence of her fiction, philosophy, and other public statements. As well as analysing Murdoch's own attitudes, Iris Murdoch, Gender and Philosophy is also a critical enquiry into the way we picture intellectual, and especially philosophical, activity. Appealing to the idea of a 'social imaginary' within which Murdoch's work is located, Lovibond examines the sense of incongruity or dissonance that may still affect our image of a woman philosopher, even where egalitarian views officially hold sway. The first thorough exploration of Murdoch and gender, Iris Murdoch, Gender and Philosophy is a fresh contribution to debates in feminist philosophy and gender studies, and essential reading for anyone interested in Murdoch's literary and philosophical writing.

In a rare full-length volume, renowned feminist thinker Sandra Lee Bartky brings together eight essays in one volume, Sympathy and Solidarity. A philosophical work accessible to an educated general audience, the essays reflect the intersection of the author's eye, work, and sometimes her politics. Two motifs connect the works: first, all deal with feminist topics and themes; second, most deal with the reality of oppression, especially in the disguised and subtle ways it can be manifested.

This book tackles assumptions surrounding the family as a changing institution and supposed haven from the public sphere of life. It considers families and social change in terms of concepts of power, inequality, gender, generations, sexuality and ethnicity. Some commentators suggest the family is threatened by increasing economic and social uncertainties and an enhanced focus upon the individual. This book provides a resume of these debates, as well as a critical review of the theories of family and social change.

»Das Urteilen« war von Hannah Arendt als dritter Teil ihres Werkes »Vom Leben des Geistes« geplant und wurde aus dem Nachlass der Philosophin rekonstruiert. Unter Berufung auf Immanuel Kant weist Arendt dem Urteilen im Leben des Geistes einen spezifischen Platz zu. Mit seiner Hilfe orientiert sich der Mensch in der Welt, schafft er Sinn. Ein breites Spektrum an Fragen wird deshalb sichtbar: Leben, Tod und Liebe, Probleme der Freiheit und der Würde des Menschen.

Caring

Gender-Sensitive Ethics

In Caring, Peta Bowden extends and challenges recent debates on feminist ethics. She takes issue with accounts of the ethics of care that focus on alleged principles of caring rather than analysing caring in practice. Caring, Bowden argues, must be understood by 'working through examples'. Following this approach, Bowden explores four main caring practices: mothering, friendship, nursing and citizenship. Her analysis of the differences and similarities in these practices - their varying degrees of intimacy and reciprocity, formality and informality, vulnerability and choice - reveals the practical complexity of the ethics of care. Caring recognizes that ethical practices constantly outrun the theories that attempt to explain them, and Bowden's unique approach provides major new insights into the nature of care without resorting to indiscriminate unitary models. It will be essential reading for all those interested in ethics, gender studies, nursing and the caring professions.
