A Feminist Cosmology : Ecology, Solidarity, and Metaphysics by Nancy R. Howell PDF

By Nancy R. Howell

during this well timed, considerate e-book, which fits to the center of feminist issues within the context of bigger social, ecological, and theological concerns, Nancy R. Howell proposes an ecofeminist worldview in line with the organic-relational philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead. particularly, the publication explores the ways that Whitehead's philosophy can assist to set up interrelationships between a number of women's groups, the connection among humanity and nature, and the theological strategy of bearing on the realm to God.

Howell strives to boost ideas which are suitable with the vast spectrum of women's voices from diverse racial backgrounds and social strata. particularly, she strikes past mere acknowledgment of differing views in the woman's move and heavily engages criticisms of race-privileged white feminism by way of African American ("womanist") and Latin American (mujerista) activists.

A Feminist Cosmology demands a self-critical reformation of feminist notion in response to a extra inclusive framework, one who takes under consideration the range of relationships between ladies, the deep interdependence of humanity and the atmosphere, and eventually the diversity of theological views pertaining to the area to God.
