We are glad to give notice of the release of the volume The Palgrave Handbook of German Idealism and Feminist Philosophy, edited by S. Lettow and T. Pulkkinen (Springer, 2022).
From the publisher’s website:
This book gives a comprehensive overview of the ways in which the relation between German Idealism and feminist philosophy has been explored. It demonstrates the significance of German Idealism for feminist philosophy, and simultaneously brings out the relevance of feminist readings and interpretations for a critical understanding of German Idealism.
• Presents original work on the German Idealists and considers their legacy within feminist thought from different philosophical perspectives.
• Incorporates perspectives from queer theory, new materialism and critical philosophy of race, and so explores German Idealism through the subversion and transformation of meanings and conceptual arrangements.
• Challenges the epistemic boundaries of philosophy by engaging the thought of women contemporary with the German Idealists such as Bettina von Arnim and Karoline von Günderrode.
• Places the work of the German Idealists on gender, sexuality, marriage and family within the wider contexts of colonialism and European nation building.
• Considers how several key concepts of German Idealism (such as subject, reason, enlightenment, autonomy and the sublime) have been central targets of feminist theory.
• Includes a Black feminist critique of Kantian universalism.
Fully reflecting the diversity that characterizes feminist thinking today, The Palgrave Handbook of German Idealism and Feminist Philosophy is essential reading for scholars and graduate students of German idealism, feminist philosophy and feminist theory.
