This book presents a significant challenge to the belief that philosophy, especially Anglo-American philosophy, is gender neutral. The author argues that this philosophical tradition is structured in such a way as to make philosophy from a woman's point of view problematic, if not impossible. Her unusual background in Anglo-American philosophy, contemporary Continental philosophy, and feminism supports a creative synthesis involving the work of philosophers in all three areas. With its focus on Locke and Hume, the book also serves as an important critique in the history of modern philosophy.
