This distinctive anthology emphasizes the philosophy of gender. McCracken presents a balanced treatment of this discipline, taking care to include a variety of historical and contemporary perspectives from male and female philosophers. She provides and analyzes significant treatments of the question of gender by authors from the traditional Western canon. These selections demonstrate the long-standing, complex issue of gender and pose a variety of answers. Selected excerpts from literature demonstrate the presence of the gender debate in fiction and add dimension to studies in this area.
