New Essays in Ethics and Feminist Philosophy

Edited by Catriona Mackenzie, Wendy Rogers, and Susan Dodds

Studies in Feminist Philosophy

  • Sustained investigation of the moral obligations arising from vulnerability, a theoretically under-explored moral concept that is nevertheless widely used in bioethics, feminist ethics, moral philosophy and social welfare policy.
  • Editors develop and apply their own novel analysis and taxonomy of vulnerability, including introducing the concept of "pathogenic" vulnerability.
  • Essays encompass both theoretical analysis and practical applications.
  • Contributors include leading theorists in feminist ethics and bioethics, who have developed original work for this volume.
