Abstract

In recent years, feminist scholarship has raised important objections to the visions of 'autonomy' produced by the enlightenment. If philosophical notions of freedom are indeed covertly male, there are clear ramifications for one's construction of God's openness and humanity's freedom. This paper will seek to explore the claims of open theism in relationship to the feminist critique, with particular attention given to the nature of 'self' and the idea of 'freedom,' and identify some questions that open/freewill theism needs to face if it is to respond to the challenges of feminism and post modernity
