The course “Feminist Metaphysics” focuses on the metaphysical issues arising in feminist philosophy. Specific topics include: the nature of social construction, the metaphysics of sex and gender, queer identities, gender essentialism, and the role of truth and objectivity in the pursuit of justice and equality for women. The course will be of interest to those studying contemporary metaphysics and its social/political applications, as well as to those in gender and women’s studies wanting to have rigorous accounts of key concepts in feminist thinking.
