Hegel and Feminist Philosophy traces the legacy of Hegel in
the work of thinkers such as de Beauvoir, Irigaray and Butler, and
also in contemporary debates in feminist ethics and political
philosophy. As Hutchings demonstrates, this is an ambivalent
legacy. Hegel figures both as an antagonistic ?other?
and as a significant resource for feminist thinking from de
Beauvoir onwards. Hegel's philosophy is antagonistic to feminism in
so far as it denigrates the female or feminist subject, excluding
women from both reason and history. His work provides a resource
for feminist philosophy because his account of reason and history
is fundamentally non-binary and can be drawn on in feminist
philosophy?s attempts to escape the binary thinking of the
philosophical tradition. Hutchings claims that feminist philosophy
is characterized by patterns of thought which oscillate between
accepting and overturning conceptual dualisms central to the
philosophical tradition. She suggests that Hegelian elements within
feminist thought provide the basis for a rethinking of feminist
philosophy which escapes this either/or choice and opens up new
possibilities for feminism. This is demonstrated by showing how
Hegelian modes of thinking help to resolve entrenched debates
within feminist philosophy over sexual difference, ethical
judgement and equality of right.

Hegel and Feminist Philosophy will be of great interest
to students and scholars of philosophy, women's studies and
political theory.
