Supplement to Feminist Perspectives on the Self

Comprehensive Bibliography on Feminist Perspectives on the Self

Introduction

This bibliography serves as a supplement to Diana Tietjens Meyers' entry “Feminist Perspectives on the Self”. I hope it will be useful to philosophers as well as a general audience. All the listings are written in English. Individual chapters in anthologies are cited, and all the mentioned anthologies are also listed separately. Although I have tried to be thorough, my apologies are offered in advance for misclassifying or omitting relevant pieces.

This Bibliography is up to date with respect to publications prior to March 1997. Because the feminist literature on the self is voluminous, it is organized around three central philosophical disciplines: metaphysics, epistemology, and social philosophy.

  • Metaphysical treatments of the self address the question ‘What is the self?’. Four sub-categories are included: agency, the body, gender & identities, and personhood.
  • Epistemological treatments of the self ask ‘What and how do we gain knowledge of the self?’. Three sub-categories are included: emotional knowledge, self-knowledge, and knowledge of others & women's ways of knowing.
  • Social treatments of the self have a dual aspect of ethics and politics. The key question addressed is ‘What are the ethics and/or politics of the self?’. Seven sub-categories are included: care ethics, critiques of individualism, ethical & political theory, families & friendship, self-respect, social groups, and violence & self.

Two additional interdisciplinary categories are included: literary & cultural studies and psychology & psychoanalysis.
