Bridging the traditionally separate domains of analytic and Continental philosophies, Pamela Sue Anderson presents for the first time a feminist framework for studying the philosophy of religion. The author shows that to partake of truly feminist philosophy of religion is to participate in a review of the philosophical project in its entirety. She provides a critical analysis of the symbolic role given to women and desire in traditional configurations of philosophical reason. The author turns to feminist epistemologies and feminist refigurings of myth to gain new insights concerning rationality and belief. Anderson's work will be especially valuable to those readers seeking a philosophical account of the rationality of religious belief which does not deny the content of female desire. It will prove invaluable to upper level students ad teachers of religion, philosophy, and feminist studies, giving original insight into this rapidly expanding field of study.
