Gender and Institutions by Professor Moira Gatens
Book DescriptionThis important interdisciplinary 1999 volume explores what might constitute a feminist approach to institutional design and reshaping. What is the scope, it asks, in contemporary Australian society, for ensuring that institutions acknowledge gender difference and deliver more equitable outcomes? This feminist perspective on institutional design shows how gendered regulatory norms underpin and intersect with all other institutional settings. The leading team of writers includes Deborah Mitchell, Bettina Cass, Chilla Bulbeck, Carol Bacchi and Joan Eveline. Topics discussed include: institutions, embodiment and sexual difference; the welfare state; housing policy; household work; republicanism and citizenship; gender-based discrimination. This book makes a major contribution to debates about the reshaping of our institutions as we move towards the twenty-first century.

Books By Author Professor Moira Gatens
Identity Politics in Deconstruction, Hardback (October 2008)
Investigates the nexus between 'the seemingly impossible of high theory and the seemingly accessible possibilities of popular discourse', as encountered in liberation movements based on identity. This book offers an explication of complex philosophical issues and an understanding of how they relate to the political practicalities of everyday life.
Vagueness, Logic and Ontology, Hardback (July 2008)
Explores various responses to the philosophical problems generated by vagueness and its associated paradox - the sorites paradox. This work argues that the theoretical space in which vagueness is sometimes ontologically grounded and modelled by a truth-functional logic affords a coherent response to the problems posed by vagueness.
Augenblick, Hardback (January 2008)
Examines the extent of the idea of the 'decisive moment', in which an individual's entire life-project is open to a radical reorientation.
Protagoras and the Challenge of Relativism, Hardback (October 2007)» View all books by Professor Moira Gatens
Protagoras was an important Greek thinker of the fifth century BC, the most famous of the so called Sophists, though most of what we know of him comes through the dialogues of his strenuous opponent Plato. This book offers an examination of Protagoras' thought for modern readers: his role as the first Western thinker to argue for relativism.
