Item description for Presenting Women Philosophers (The New Academy) by Cecile T. Tougas & Sara Ebenreck...

Western philosophy has long excluded the work of women thinkers from their canon. Presenting Women Philosophers addresses this exclusion by examining the breadth of women's contributions to Western thought over some 900 years. Editors Cecile T. Tougas and Sara Ebenreck have gathered essays and other writings that reflect women's deep engagement with the meaning of individual experience as well as the continuity of their philosophical concerns and practices. Arranged thematically, the collection ranges across eras and literary genres as it emphasizes the intellectual significance of written work by key figures -- for example, Hildegard of Bingen's visionary writings, Iris Murdoch's fiction, Hannah Arendt's historical narratives, and the oral storytelling in black women's literary tradition. The collection also brings to light the philosophical importance of little-known work by such writers as Mme de Sable and Mme de Condorcet. This wide-ranging collection offers non-philosophers an introduction to women's thought but also promises to engage advanced students of philosophy with new research on unrecognized contributions.

Reviews - What do customers think about Presenting Women Philosophers (The New Academy)?

Feminist resource  Oct 26, 2002
One of the great works of the past decades in philosophy has been the retrieval of lost women philosophers. This anthology provides a number of commentaries on women philosophers who are less known as well as some new commentary on those who have already gained some recognition. There's a nice blend here of different approaches: literary, historical, speculative. Gerdner's opening essay on the problem of the history of women's philosophy is extremely interesting.
Expanding the canon  Oct 2, 2000
Many of us want to expand our philosophy and other humanities courses to include the voices of women. This is an excellent resource to do so. The essays open up the writings of women from different periods and show the different types of philosophy they developed. The thematic grouping is also appealing. It challenges the dustier chronological approach.
Silence, please  Sep 2, 2000
When I started my work in philosophy, I was informed that there were no women philosophers---well, there were, but the few female stars (Arendt, Weill, Beauvoir) were more "journalists" than philosophers. They can't get away with that anymore. And the reason they can't are books like this. This is a great anthology of essays on women philosophers. There are many fine pieces here on contemporary issues in women's philosophy. But I especially enjoyed the work on women thinkers from the past. Madame de Condorcet was new to me. I also liked the focus on philosophies of love and friendship---an important area of ethics, too often dismissed as sentimental. They can't silence the philosophical voice of women anymore.
