Your reader barcode: Your last name:. Ecofeminism reached its first peak in the late s and early s.
Fortunately, in recent years, interest in this area of study has experienced a resurgence. Not only is the study of the conceptual links between systematic exploitation of nature and oppressed people for example, women, racialized people, queers an effective avenue for illustrating the connection between epistemological and spiritual frameworks and concrete lived consequences, but understanding and addressing these links has never been so vitally critical as it is now. The strengths of this volume overshadow its weaknesses. That said, I would like to briefly review three aspects of the text that I found disappointing: insufficient targeted attention on the body and sexuality, a weak enaction of interdisciplinarity, and the use of the feminist-wave narrative to frame feminist history.
Approaches to Feminism
Of course, no volume can cover every topic, but only two chapters target topics specifically focused on the body: disability and reproduction. In response to the persistent neglect of the body in traditional Western philosophy, feminist philosophers have pioneered foundational investigations of issues related to embodiment. Systems of oppression operate through the definition, regulation, and control of material bodies, often through sexual norms, sexual practices, sexual stigma, and sexually objectified representations.

Arguably, contributions to this topic merit their own chapters. It is commendable that this series of textbooks aspires to present an interdisciplinary approach to each topic.

Lamentably, genuine interdisciplinary explanations are challenging for most people trained in one discipline. Very few chapters in this volume provide interdisciplinary perspectives on the topics they address. Most chapters use characters and situations from fictional films, novels, and TV shows to illustrate points. Undoubtedly, using examples from popular stories and narratives plays a critical role in making the text more palatable and lucid for students, but the use of examples from film, novels, and shows does not constitute an interdisciplinary approach.
A genuine interdisciplinary approach integrates two or more modes of inquiry, such as theoretical analyses, empirical findings, historical accounts, and ethnographic reports.
Feminist Philosophy – Feminism, Phenomenology, and Genealogy
With respect to praxis, connecting concepts found in feminist philosophy to world events, sociological facts, and scientific findings would have been instructive in some chapters. Although the use of interdisciplinarity is not essential for the success of this text, describing it as interdisciplinary is inaccurate.

Finally, I would like to address the use of the feminist-waves narrative to frame feminist history. To be fair, the chapter is a well written, critical exploration of the waves narrative. Of course, students of feminist theory should study the waves narrative--but as a historically situated description that we have moved beyond due to its problematic nature.

The waves narrative should not serve as a historical introduction to feminism, feminist theory, and especially not feminist philosophy. Not only does the wave narrative do a poor job of adequately explaining the development of the feminist movement in the US, it almost completely fails to explain the development of US feminist philosophy.
First, the wave framework is based on the feminist political movement in the US, which is structured largely by liberal feminism.
