Abstract and Keywords

This chapter presents feminist perspectives on core topics in natural theology. It suggests that a philosophical openness to thinking about nature, about our human relationships, capacities, concepts, and conceptual scheme would enable a constructive feminist perspective on natural theology. Topics discussed include the feminist challenge to the western tradition of natural theology; myth, absolute truth, and male supremacy; sexual difference, transcendence, and religious epistemology. The views of feminist philosophers such as Simone de Beauvoir, Michèle Le Doeuff, Mary Daly, Luce Irigaray, and Patrice Haynes are analyzed.

Keywords: feminism, natural theology, western philosophy, feminist philosophers, women philosophers, Simone de Beauvoir, Michèle Le Doeuff, Mary Daly, Luce Irigaray, Patrice Haynes
