Sheth, Falguni A. Review of Ann Ferguson, et al., eds. DANCING WITH IRIS. NDPR (September 2010).

Ferguson, Ann, and Mechthild Nagel, eds.  Dancing with Iris: the Philosophy of Iris Marion Young.  Oxford: OUP, 2009.

This collection of 18 essays is an intellectual tribute to the presence and thought of Iris Marion Young, a philosopher who wrote across a broad spectrum of topics. Young, who died in July 2006, wrote notably about feminist phenomenology, ethics and social justice, democratic theory, global justice and security.

Since it is not possible to review all eighteen essays, I will discuss a selection of themes and essays from each section. . . .
