Ecological Feminist Philosophies by Karen Warren

Here feminist philosophers and ecofeminist scholars pursue the connections between feminism and environmentalism. Topics include the ecofeminist ethic; the role of patriarchal concepts in perpetuating the domination of women and nature; the grassroots origins and character of a thoughtful ecofeminism; the ecofeminism-deep ecology debate in environmental philosophy; deep ecological treatment of animal rights and the omission of ecofeminist analyses of the domination of animals, abortion, and nuclear deterrence; and ways ecofeminism and the science of ecology are or could be engaged in complementary, supportive projects. The contributors are Carol J. Adams, Carol H. Cantrell, Jim Cheney, Chris Cuomo, Deane Curtin, Victoria Davion, Roger J. H. King, Stephanie Lahar, Patricia Jagentowicz Mills, Patrick D. Murphy, Val Plumwood, Catherine Roach, Robert Sessions, Deborah Slicer, and Karen J. Warren.

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.
