Although Hegel and feminism seem an unlikely couple, Hegelian philosophy played a prominent part in the thinking of groundbreaking feminist philosophers from Simone de Beauvoir to Luce Irigaray. This book offers a new generation of feminist readings of Hegel from leading scholars in the both fields. Through close readings and innovative arguments, this book makes a significant contribution to the debate on gender and provides insight into philosophical method.
KIMBERLY HUTCHINGS is Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science, UK.   TUIJA PULKKINEN is Professor of Women's Studies at the University of Helsinki, Finland.

Editorial Reviews

"This book presents some the best and most prominent contemporary authors engaged in feminist readings of Hegel, including Judith Butler, Kimberly Hutchings, Alison Stone and Nancy Bauer, amongst others. Contributors offer particularly original close readings and ingenious arguments. Hutchings and Pulkkinen include both some very high level and emergent voices of distinctively high calibre. All in all, the number of names with a reputation for innovative, distinctive, finely nuanced and responsible work is impressive." - Penelope Deutscher
