Beschreibung
In contemporary continental philosophy, feminist theory and reflections on sexuality and gender rarely make contact with religion. Conversely, philosophy of religion seldom interacts with discourses in feminism, sexuality, and gender. In Feminism, Sexuality, and the Return of Religion, seven internationally recognized scholars tackle complicated questions provoked by the often stormy intersection of these powerful forces. Breaking down barriers as they extend the richness of each philosophical tradition, the essays in this book cover themes such as queer sexuality and religion, feminism and the gift, feminism and religious reform, and religion and diversity. Contributors include Hélène Cixous, Sarah Coakley, Kelly Brown Douglas, Mark D. Jordan, Catherine Keller, Saba Mahmood, and Gianni Vattimo.
