The Future of Feminist Philosophy and Opportunities Squandered

When I recently said “goodbye” to someone whom I’m wild about, I screwed it up. Come to think of it, on that occasion, I didn’t do a great job of “hello” either. But the farewell was certainly a missed opportunity. I said something like “It means so much to me to have your friendship.” Which […]
