What does it mean to be a moral subject and to affirm one's moral identity? Does feminist moral philosophy enlighten the nature of moral identity generally or only that of women's specific identity? This volume examines the influence of moral dualism, nature, reason, individualism and moral development of women's selfhood. It contrasts and criticises traditional approaches that stultify identity. It addresses head-on that elusive basis for extolling virtues specific to women and to being human. By drawing on many different debates and interweaving connections, a strong argument emerges which transcends one-sidedness and suggests new visions of moral identity and maturity that incorporate diverse character attributes. In affirming a commonality with others, as well as differences from others, "Women and moral identity" is for readers interested in the uniqueness of particular moral identities. It shows how the relationship between what we know, who we are, and how we act, can strike a balance between a respect for self-integrity and the respect of others. This book is intended for students and researchers in gender studies, philosophy and sociology.
