  1. Pregnant Embodiment: Subjectivity and Alienation.Iris Marion Young - 1984 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 9 (1):45-62.
    The pregnant subject has a unique experience of her body. The dichotomy between self and other, self and world, breaks down. She can experience a positive narcissism and sense of process. Some conceptualizations and practices of contemporary medicine, however, can alienate the pregnant subject from this bodily experience.

  • Mommy, What Did You Do in the Industrial Revolution? Meditations on the Rising Cesarean Rate.Lauren A. Plante - 2009 - International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics 2 (1):140-147.
    As the cesarean rate rises in the United States, it is sometimes hailed as a move toward increased safety or increased autonomy. But the industrialization of birth may have consequences which actually decrease women’s autonomy and strip choices away.

  • Measuring Mothering.Rebecca Kukla - 2008 - International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics 1 (1):67-90.
    As a culture, we have a tendency to measure motherhood in terms of a set of signal moments that have become the focus of special social attention and anxiety; we interpret these as emblematic summations of women's mothering abilities. Women's performances during these moments can seem to exhaust the story of mothering, and mothers often internalize these measures and evaluate their own mothering in terms of them. "Good" mothers are those who pass a series of tests—they bond properly during their (...)

  • Choosing Cesarean: Feminism and the Politics of Childbirth in the United States.Katherine Beckett - 2005 - Feminist Theory 6 (3):251-275.
    This article uses the US debate over elective Cesarean section to re-consider some of the more contentious issues raised in feminist debates about childbirth. Three waves of feminist commentary and critique in the United States are analysed in light of the ongoing debate over whether women should be able to choose Cesarean for non-medical reasons. I argue that the alternative birth movement's essentialist and occasionally moralistic rhetoric is problematic, and the idea that some women's preference for high-tech obstetrics is the (...)

  • Maurice Merleau-Ponty: Basic Writings.Maurice Merleau-Ponty - 2003 - Routledge.
    Merleau-Ponty was a pivotal figure in twentieth century French philosophy. He was responsible for bringing the phenomenological methods of the German philosophers, Husserl and Heidegger, to France and instigated a new wave of interest in this approach. His influence extended well beyond the boundaries of philosophy and can be seen in theories of politics, art and language. This is the first volume to bring together a comprehensive selection of Merleau-Ponty's writing and presents a cross-section of his work which shows the (...)

  • Marine Lover of Friedrich Nietzsche.Luce Irigaray, Gillian C. Gill & Margaret Whitford - 1993 - Hypatia 8 (4):150-159.
    This article reviews three recent books that enhance our understanding of the work of French feminist Luce Irigaray: Marine Lover of Friedrich Nietzsche and The Irigaray Reader, and Philosophy in the Feminine, a commentary on Irigaray's work by Margaret Whitford. The author emphasizes a dynamic reading of Irigaray's philosophy and integrates theoretical concepts with poetic/utopian passages from the works.
