Disorientation and Moral Life

Ami Harbin

Studies in Feminist Philosophy

  • Provides philosophical and conceptual account of what disorientations are or what they do
  • Highlights disorientations as a distinct experience of not-knowing-how-to-go-on, which, though very difficult, can have promising effects
  • Challenges a clear binary between negative versus positive emotions, and affirms Sue Campbell's arguments for the importance of being able to experience and express idiosyncratic emotions in relation with others, especially because of how hard disorientations can be to describe
  • Demonstrates how disorientations can prompt changes in dimensions of awareness that can be morally productive
