    Jacques Rancière and Care Ethics: Four Lessons in (Feminist) Emancipation.Sophie Bourgault - 2022 - Philosophies 7 (3):62.
    This paper proposes a conversation between Jacques Rancière and feminist care ethicists. It argues that there are important resonances between these two bodies of scholarship, thanks to their similar indictments of Western hierarchies and binaries, their shared invitation to “blur boundaries” and embrace a politics of “impropriety”, and their views on the significance of storytelling/narratives and of the ordinary. Drawing largely on Disagreement, Proletarian Nights, and The Ignorant Schoolmaster: Five Lessons in Intellectual Emancipation, I also indicate that Rancière’s work offers (...)

    Music and Pedagogy in the Platonic City.Sophie Bourgault - 2012 - Journal of Aesthetic Education 46 (1):59-72.
    The gods, however, took pity on the human race, born to suffer as it was, and gave it relief in the form of religious festivals to serve as periods of rest from its labors. They gave us the Muses, with Apollo their leader, and Dionysus; by having these gods to share their holidays, men were to be made whole again . . .That Plato1 regarded music as an extremely powerful means to cultivate morality and good citizenship is well-known.2 In the (...)

    Prolegomena to a caring bureaucracy.Sophie Bourgault - 2017 - European Journal of Women's Studies 24 (3):202-217.
    Bureaucracy has had few admirers, as a quick perusal of 20th-century political and social theory readily indicates. In recent years, several feminist theorists have also joined this vociferous anti-bureaucracy chorus, denouncing bureaucracy’s excessively hierarchical, impersonal, cold and controlling nature. The goal of this article is to review these charges and to show why the term ‘caring bureaucracy’ is not an oxymoron. In the first two sections, the author considers the various reasons why bureaucratic structures are said to be bad both (...)

    Simone Weil et les éthiques féministes du care.Sophie Bourgault - 2023 - Cahiers Philosophiques 171 (4):23-38.
    Depuis leur naissance aux États-Unis au début des années 1980, les éthiques féministes du care ont fréquemment puisé dans l’œuvre de Simone Weil afin de théoriser les qualités morales nécessaires pour le soin – en particulier, l’attention. Toutefois, la pertinence de Weil pour penser le travail est rarement considérée par les théoricien.ne.s du care. Si le care peut être compris à la fois comme disposition/qualité morale et comme activité/travail pratique, nous souhaitons montrer la pertinence du corpus weilien pour penser ces (...)

    Pragmatic Aesthetics and the Autistic Artist.Deborah Barnbaum, Kyle Hunter, Sophie Bourgault, Emily Brady, Andrea Bramberger, Howard Cannatella, Carla Carmona Escalera, Arne De Boever & J. Grube - 2012 - The Journal of Aesthetic Education 46 (4):48-56.
    There are many prominent examples of artists with autism. However, even when confronted with evidence of these accomplished autistic savants, pragmatic aesthetic theories cannot adequately account for the work of these accomplished artists as artists. This article first examines the nature of autism and explores a prominent psychological theory that purports to explain autistic symptoms. This prominent theory, the theory of mind thesis, holds that autistic symptoms are the result of the failure of persons with autism to make certain types (...)

    Friedrich Nietzsche’s Musical Aesthetics.Sophie Bourgault - 2013 - Symposium: Canadian Journal of Continental Philosophy/Revue canadienne de philosophie continentale 17 (1):171-193.
    It is well known that Friedrich Nietzsche loved to refer to himself as the “last disciple of Dionysus.” On the basis of this famous self-characterization, it would seem warranted to describe Nietzsche’s ideal as Dionysian—as Tracy Strong, Bruce Detwiler, and Daniel Conway have done. This paper seeks to reassess the extent of Nietzsche’s Dionysianism via an examination of what the philosopher had to say about music—in particular, Richard Wagner’s music. What the paper argues is that Nietzsche’s musical aesthetics is remarkably (...)

    The discreet wearing out of bodies and souls at work: Simone Weil on speed, humiliation and slow affliction.Sophie Bourgault - 2023 - Logos. Anales Del Seminario de Metafísica [Universidad Complutense de Madrid, España] 56 (2):235-252.
    The goals of this paper are twofold. First, the paper seeks to show the relevance of French philosopher Simone Weil’s writings on work for contemporary political and social theory. More specifically, by drawing on Weil’s “factory writings”—i.e. the diary she kept during the many months she spent working in factories, and the essays and letters that followed shortly after—the article shows that Weil’s analysis of speed, humiliation and affliction is highly pertinent for reflecting upon the consequences of the increasingly ubiquitous (...)
