Reviews

"Not only is there a diversity of interpretation of Wittgenstein vis-à-vis feminist theory, but there is great variation in these essays' incorporation of Wittgenstein's philosophical constructs as well. . . . Scholars in either field will find this of interest."

--Fransisca Goldsmith, Library Journal


"As should be clear, this book is not really something that is designed for those whose primary interest is Wittgenstein. But for those with an interest in feminist theory and an openness to Wittgensteinian ideas, it makes many valuable contributions."

--Mark Lance, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews


"For feminist philosophers interested in the history of ideas, the release of a new volume in The Pennsylvania State University Press 'Re-Reading The Canon' series is an important event. This volume fully lives up to the series' well-earned reputation for excellence. It provides a wealth of insight and stimulation for those interested in the implications of Wittgenstein's work for destabilizing philosophical orthodoxes as well as for those who are concerned more specifically with questions of gender."

--Peta Bowden, Philosophy in Review

"Both Feminist Interpretations of Ludwig Wittgenstein and Oppression and Responsibility provide tantalizing examples of the ways in which feminist scholarship benefits from close and careful readings of Wittgenstein's work through a feminist lens."
