Intersectionality, the attempt to bring theories on race, gender, disability and sexuality together, has existed for decades as a theoretical framework. Despite this it remains almost entirely absent from contemporary philosophical thinking. The essays in this volume explore how intersectionality can be applied to modern philosophy, as well as looking at other disciplines – political science, education, law, art and history – where work on philosophical intersectionalism is already developing.
