Description

This study examines Woolf's work as a contribution to philosophy, focusing on her contribution to ethics and expanding the discussion beyond her fiction to include specifically autobiographical writing. Its focus on social ethics combined with an interdisciplinary approach should appeal to scholars from a number of different perspectives. The social theory developed in Part One draws especially on the work of Jean Piaget. Approaching deconstruction via Piaget and Woolf, the volume makes a contribution to the postmodern discussion of the death of the subject and the reconstruction of virtue.
