A Woman's Thought or a Man's Discipline? The Letters of Abelard and Heloise

Hypatia 7 (3):1 - 22 (1992)
This paper is part of a larger project of recovering the work of women thinkers. Heloise has traditionally been read as either a foil of Abelard or his intellectual appendage. In this paper, I present her views on love, religious devotion, and language as an alternative to philosophic method as it is conceived by Abelard.
