Can Women Think? An Attempt to Go Beyond Philosophy as Difference
November 30th 2016, Maryland Room, Marie Mount Hall, University of Maryland, College Park.
Abstract: The history of (Western) philosophy has been dominated by male thinkers. What does this mean for our understanding of thinking and the structures through which we understand reality and the world around us? Is it possible to find a way for those excluded from power to decide what is normal and what is mad, for minorities, for women, to define what it means to think and be? Or is being a woman always going to be defined through an essential lack of something? In other words, is a thinking woman always an oxymoron?
