Coming to Life

Philosophies of Pregnancy, Childbirth and Mothering

Edited by Sarah LaChance Adams and Caroline R. Lundquist

A Fordham University Press Publication

Perspectives in Continental Philosophy (FUP)

Coming to Life does what too few scholarly works have dared to attempt: it takes seriously the philosophical significance of women's lived experience. Every woman, regardless of her own reproductive story, is touched by the beliefs and norms governing discourses about pregnancy, childbirth, and mothering. Thus, the concerns of this anthology are relevant to all women and central to any philosophical project that takes women's lives seriously.
