About this book


The western philosophical tradition has only recently explored alterity, in particular the alterity of woman as the other of man. This volume reflects on the ethical implications of this, and on the need for a rethinking of the implicit structures of Western philosophy, which exclude women as subjects who conceptualize the world and society.
