[Noûs] Barnes, Gender and Gender Terms (Forthcoming)

Elizabeth Barnes (U of Virginia), forthcoming in Noûs.

Philosophical theories of gender are typically understood as theories of what it is to be a woman, a man, a nonbinary person, and so on. In this paper, I argue that this is a mistake. There’s good reason to suppose that our best philosophical theory of gender might not directly match up to or give the extensions of ordinary gender categories like ‘woman’.
