"The time is right for a work of feminist philosophy that engages the traditional problematics of epistemology. Until now, the term "feminist epistemology" has typically been used to denote women's ways of knowing, women's experience, and the critique of specific theories about women. This book inaugurates a field of study at the intersection of feminist philosophy and epistemology "proper." Feminists have raised important questions about epistemology, but no book has carried these questions as deeply into the heart of the discipline."--BOOK JACKET.
