"This book is a real contribution to contemporary feminist literature. The project is interesting and the author invites both her friends and her enemies to rethink the problem." --E.F. Kaelin, Professor of Philosophy, Florida State University "The principal merit of Carol Bigwood's Earth Muse is, precisely, its earthiness. Extremely detailed analyses of the western philosophical tradition and enculturated attitudes toward nature...are tied together by exquisitely sensual meditations on great artworks... The striking concreteness of Bigwood's writing--her love of the physical of the sensory, of what is fluid and generative--represent her antidote to 'the ontological exile of the feminine from western Being' and her cautious, yet profound first steps toward a 'nonsexist ontology.' Much like an accomplished set of musical variations upon a theme, this is an impressive achievement." --Michael Allen Fox, Professor of Philosophy, Queen's University "Earth Muse is a provocative, innovative, insightful and even witty investigation of the intersection of Heideggerian and post-Heideggerian critiques of the 'essence of technology' with the feminist critique of phallocentric thought and culture... It is a powerful synthesis of two contemporary postmodern views which are not readily associated with each other, and a convincing portrait of what things would look like were we somehow to break the spell of phallocentric and logocentric presuppositions." --John D. Caputo, David Cook Professor of Philosophy, Villanova University
