"Ruth Abbey provides a close study of the seminal writings from Nietzsche's middle period: Human, All Too Human, Daybreak, and The Gay Science. Although these works tend to be neglected in commentaries on the philosopher, Abbey argues that they deserve attention."

The return of feminist liberalism by Ruth Abbey( Book )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Ruth Abbey examines the positions of three contemporary feminists - Martha Nussbaum, Susan Moller Okin, and Jean Hampton - who, notwithstanding decades of feminist critique, are unwilling to give up on liberalism. Abbey examines why, and in what ways, each of these theorists believes that liberalism offers the normative and political resources for the improvement of women's lives. Going beyond their shared allegiance to liberalism, Abbey explains and evaluates their theoretical differences, and in so doing, goes to the heart of recent debates in feminist and political theory

Descent and dissent : Nietzsche's reading of two French moralists by Ruth Abbey( )

3 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This dissertation reads Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) as a reader of two French moralists--Francois de la Rocbefoucauld (1613-80) and Sebastien Roch Nicolas Chamfort (1741-94). The works of Nietzsche's middle period are studied--Human, All too Human (1879), and Daybreak (1881) and The Gay Science (1882). The study argues that reading Nietzsche as a descendant of and dissenter from the moralist tradition sheds new light on his thought and brings certain concepts into focus. The key concepts and questions explored are: morality, egoism, vanity and self-love, pity and its cognate emotions, friendship, aristocracy, honour, women, marriage and gender relations. Throughout the dissertation the impact that reading the moralists had on Nietzsche's style is also examined. It is argued that a concern with justice is the 'basso continuo' of the middle period, continuously present and working itself out in the background of these texts. Furthermore, one of the innovative ways Nietzsche expresses this concern is via spatial metaphors." --
