Rediscovering women philosophers: philosophical genre and the boundaries of philosophy

Boulder, Colo.: Westview (2000)
  Copy   BIBTEX


This book examines the philosophical foremothers of women’s philosophy and explores what their work may have to offer modern theorizing in feminist ethics. Through such writers as Catharine Macaulay, Mary Wollstonecraft, and George Eliot, Gardner interprets a varied selection of moral philosophers in an attempt both to contribute to our understanding of their work, and perhaps even to encourage other philosophers to interpretive work of their own. She also looks into the reasons such forms as novels, letters, and poetry have often been assigned non-philosophical status, while they seem to be prevalent in the work of women philosophers from the history of philosophy.
