Summary
"Much of the history of western ethical thought has been composed of debates about the bases of "the good life." It has typically been taken for granted that "the good life" is achievable only by (certain) human beings. Feminists and Continental philosophers have long challenged both the descriptive accuracy and the prescriptive hold of the idea of the human life whose goodness is under discussion. Beyond the normative demands implicit in the idea of the good life, or the properly human life, more and more philosophers are now interrogating the question of life from within a broader frame. Feminist Philosophies of Life signals the importance of distinctively feminist reflections upon matters of shared concern among living beings. For many of the contributors to this volume, it is not enough to expose the tendency of discourses to normalize and exclude differently-abled, racialized, feminized, and gender nonconforming people, although this task remains central. It is also necessary to ask what life is or how life is constituted. What are the conditions under which life on earth is possible? To what extent do we share the struggles and needs of other living beings? And what is it about living bodies that enables them to develop in so-called "social" or "spiritual" ways? How, as feminist philosophers, do we respond to the precarious existences of people experiencing disability, prisoners, fetuses and pregnant women, murdered and missing indigenous women, and of life itself on a planet that is rapidly being impacted by climate change?"--
