Reviews

"...clever and imaginative..." -- Karen Struening, Signs
"...Battersby's construction in the book is a model of detail and clarity." -- Philosophy in Review/Comptes Rendus Philosophiques
"The Phenomenal Woman is a startlingly original work of philosophy. In her construction of a new metaphysics, which takes the woman as norm in definitions of self, personhood and identity, Christine Battersby contests the conceptualization of the Kantian subject. Taking the risk of (re)constructive philosophy, she offers a challenge to postmodernist feminisms and their reliance on what she describes as the 'despairing epistemology' of deconstructive postmodernism." -- Margaret Whitford, University of London
