Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the strengths of Presenting Women Philosophers is the way that it integrates accounts of women's lives with their work, while providing well-thought-out assessments of that work. Another is that it develops and analyzes work that simply is not otherwise available... [This book] examines the writings of women philosophers in a way that no other book to my knowledge does, and it is thematically well-integrated." --Charlene Haddock Seigfried, Professor of Philosophy, Purdue University

From the Publisher

Women's unique outlook on life reveals itself in philosophical thought throughout the ages

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Tom Staniewicz on September 2, 2000
Format: Paperback
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.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Rhonda George on October 2, 2000
Format: Hardcover
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.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By elaine sklar on October 26, 2002
Format: Paperback
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.
