Despite the growing wealth of knowledge concerning the prominent contribution women philosophers have made to their respective fields throughout history, the works of these women are rarely included on philosophy syllabuses. Consequently, women philosophers of the early to late modern era remain underestimated and underappreciated. The goal of this reading group is to rediscover the women who participated directly in the major philosophical debates of their time and had a hand in bringing many of the classic texts of philosophy to the world. Through a combination of primary and secondary sources, we will examine these women’s views on religion, history and philosophy, as well as their assessments of womanhood and the role of women within scholarship.
