By Nancy R. Howell

during this well timed, considerate ebook, which fits to the guts of feminist matters within the context of bigger social, ecological, and theological concerns, Nancy R. Howell proposes an ecofeminist worldview according to the organic-relational philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead. specifically, the e-book explores the ways that Whitehead's philosophy may also help to set up interrelationships between a variety of women's groups, the connection among humanity and nature, and the theological strategy of pertaining to the realm to God.

Howell strives to improve rules which are appropriate with the broad spectrum of women's voices from diverse racial backgrounds and social strata. in particular, she strikes past mere acknowledgment of differing views in the woman's stream and heavily engages criticisms of race-privileged white feminism via African American ("womanist") and Latin American (mujerista) activists.

A Feminist Cosmology demands a self-critical reformation of feminist concept in line with a extra inclusive framework, one who takes under consideration the range of relationships between ladies, the deep interdependence of humanity and the atmosphere, and finally the range of theological views referring to the realm to God.
