Fantastic Female Philosophers

634 TUTOR: Darren Harper (BA (Hons) English and Creative Writing, PGCE)

Female philosophers are often overlooked, and though there are few examples in the ancient and medieval worlds due to patriarchal dominance, they have made themselves salient in modernity. This course will celebrate some of the contributions made by female philosophers throughout the last two millennia, including Hypatia, Hildegard of Bingen, Mary Wollstonecraft, Hannah Arendt, Simone de Beauvoir and Iris Murdoch.
