I have expanded the page, hopefully enough to address the concerns about the validity of the page. 22.214.171.124 19:48, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
I meant "notability" not "validity" in the above comment. JKillah 19:52, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
From the 'Wikipedia: notability' page:
If an academic/professor meets any one of the following conditions, they are definitely notable. If an academic/professor meets none of these conditions, they may still be notable, and the merits of an article on the academic/professor will depend largely on verifiability.
1. The person is regarded as an expert in their area by independent sources. 2. The person is regarded as an important figure by those in the same field. 3. The person has published a large quantity of academic work (of at least reasonable quality). 4. The person has published a well-known or high quality academic work. 5. The person is known for originating an important new concept, theory or idea. 6. The person is known for their involvement in significant events relating to their academic achievements. 7. The person is known for being the advisor of an especially notable student. 8. The person has received a notable award or honor, or has been often nominated for them.
I would say Benhabib clearly meets criteria 2, 3, and 4 and I have tried to edit the page to make that apparent. JKillah 19:55, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Benhabib is definitely quite prominent in her field, easily exceeding the "professor test". This article could probably be better fleshed out with her works, and discussion of them.
I saw a "see also" section links to Judith Butler. What is the sense of this? I'm sure both are familiar with each other's work; and most likely they've met personally (I've been at a conference both attended, though I can't say I specifically saw them talking). But their respective work is not particularly closely related: certainly a few dozen other thinkers are more closely connected to Benhabib than Butler is. LotLE×talk 06:43, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
Maybe there is a relevant navbox to add rather than just picking some random "kinda similar thinkers". Actually, I just became guilty here by adding Iris Young. LotLE×talk 06:45, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
