Editorial Reviews


“This is cultural history at its best. The topic is of greatest philosophical and cultural importance. It will be a major contribution to a feminist epistemology.” ― Patrick Hill

“The book is an original and imaginative treatment of the Cartesian bequest. It is well written, intelligent, and exciting in implication. The author has an excellent grasp of the necessary texts and she has interwoven a series of creative and fascinating themes, seldom if ever pursued in Cartesian studies. This book is in the tradition of culturally interpretive works and should take its place among the most imaginative reconstructions of the Cartesian era.” ― John J. McDermott, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Texas A & M University
