9780742513815: The Philosopher Queen: Feminist Essays on War, Love, and Knowledge (Feminist Constructions)

The Philosopher Queen is a collection of essays and monologues addressing deep questions about gender, race, science, and global politics, ideal for both students and lay readers. Weaving together philosophical analysis and narrative, Cuomo develops positions that resonate in a world where all truths are partial, yet the search for truth is more important than ever. Scholarly, humorous, and brazenly feminist, these inviting essays encourage us to reinvestigate war, sex, justice, and wholeness. They acknowledge the complexity of reality while holding fast to the promise of common values, and in the face of cynicism and violence they present a conception of ethics that aims toward flourishing.

About the Author:

Chris Cuomo is associate professor of philosophy at the University of Cincinnati. She is the author or editor of numerous articles and two other books, including Whiteness (Rowman & Littlefield, 1999), which she edited with Kim Hall.

Review:

Lively, often funny, thought-provoking pieces in which the whole work's preoccupation with the blending of theory and life surfaces effectively and engagingly. (Women's Review of Books)

Chris Cuomo makes philosophy more acessible in this collection of essays. She blends together anecdote with theory giving the reader a deeper sence of meaning and connection with her thoughts. Uniting ideas with action, Cuomo sees the harmful disconnect between the "thinkers" of academia and the "doers" of grassroots activism. Where most writers stop, Cuomo continues to delve into uncomfortable places that blur the boundary of "right" and "wrong". She doesn't allow herself to stop searching the vast expanse of multiple truths, even in moments of embarrassment and self-consciousness. Her voice is different, and in many ways reassuring. (Altar Magazine)

Chris Cuomo serves up a philosopher's delight. The Philosopher Queen is a challenging, stimulating and delightful work that proposes an unorthodox and refreshing approach to thinking, one that fits the interesting times in which we live. (Paula Gunn Allen, emerita professor, UCLA)

Cuomo's arguments are clear. They are honest and motivating. And, at this historical moment they are exactly what we need. (Alison Bailey, Illinois State University Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy)
