Ivone Gebara’s Pragmatic Ecofeminism

The Aesthetics and Ethics of Faith

Christopher D. Tirres

Oxford University Press

This chapter forges a dialogue between the ecofeminism of Brazilian theologian Ivone Gebara and the pragmatic philosophy of John Dewey. The author looks especially at the ways in which both thinkers connect their theory of experience to a liberating ethics through the medium of human intelligence. The chapter underscores the pragmatic aspects of Gebara’s work and shows how Dewey’s work in metaphysics can help to make some of her central claims even more explicit.

Keywords:   Gebara, Dewey, ecofeminism, Latina feminism, pragmatism, experience, metaphysics, epistemology, lo cotidiano, _Longing for Running Water_
