Shew, Melissa M. (Hrsg.): Philosophy for Girls

An Invitation to a Life of Thought

Could you name ten women philosophers? Could you name three? Most people couldn't. For thousands of years, women have been relegated to the margins of philosophy, their contributions too often absorbed into their male counterparts' work, smothered, or simply made impossible to pursue. This volume aims to redress the imbalance in gender parity that persists well into the 21st century by offering a range of essays written exclusively by women and directed toward girls and young women interested in philosophy and analytical thinking. Divided into four sections that correspond to major fields in philosophy-metaphysics, epistemology, social and political philosophy, and ethics-the essays explore a wide range of topics that will interest young readers and entice them to learn more. Philosophy for Girls gives a tour of the diverse landscape of philosophy, inspiring a new generation of women philosophers.
