Description & Coverage
Description:

Much of our understanding of the world, our societies, and ourselves rests on theories and knowledge generated predominantly by men of certain nationalities and economic classes. This male-dominated and culturally specific theorizing and knowledge have generally resulted in the exclusion of women and other groups from the process of formal theorizing and knowledge building. Feminism argues that the male-dominated knowledge represents a skewed perception of reality and is only partial knowledge. Feminism is a generalized, wide-ranging system of ideas about social life and human experience developed from a woman-centered perspective. It treats women as the central subjects in the investigative process and seeks to see the world from the distinctive vantage points of women in the social world. The best way to empower women and better the situation for women is to take women’s daily experiences and their informal theorizing into account and, on this basis, adopt feminist approaches to building theory and knowledge.

Philosophising Experiences and Vision of the Female Body, Mind, and Soul: Historical Context and Contemporary Theory provides an overview and introduction to the study of feminist theory and practice in the social sciences. This book provides a starting point for further and more advanced study of the nexus of feminism, gender, and development and translates feminist theory and concepts into practice. The chapters investigate, in a historical context, mainstream and contemporary theories of feminism and gender studies. This book is ideal for post-graduate students of social science; researchers of development management, business management, public governance, and gender and development; activists; feminists; and practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students interested in feminist theory and knowledge building.
