In Gendered Readings of Change, the author attempts to develop a unique theory of change by drawing upon elements of both US philosophy and contemporary feminist thought. Fischer argues for the reconstruction of theories of change so that they are inclusive of women’s experiences. By analysing select Ancient Greek and pragmatist theories, the author shows the reader how such theories can contribute to the development and evolution of feminist thought regarding change and transformation today. Fischer’s work gives feminist philosophising the clout it sadly needs to be taken seriously as a methodological approach within academia, writes Katherine Williams.
