Exhibitions of their photography were mounted in Turkey, Armenia, Great Britain, and the United States.
Criticism and Compassion: The Ethics and Politics of Claudia Card offers a unique perspective on the range of issues explored by Card during her distinguished career in philosophy. She was an early leader in the development of feminist philosophy, challenging many preconceptions about society's norms regarding gender, marriage, and motherhood. Her work in these areas raised fundamental issues in ethical theory as it had been conceived in the profession. Her work on evil, human rights, war, and genocide crossed many disciplinary boundaries. Her concept of social death has come to play a significant role in the multidisciplinary field of genocide studies. This volume combines many of Claudia Card's important essays with recently commissioned essays by leading philosophers whose work has been influenced by Card. The full scope of Card's philosophy is presented here, both in her own words and in those of her critics and interpreters.
