Singing in the Fire
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Ask most people to imagine a philosophe and they probably think of someone like Socrates - absent-minded, perhaps, but with a sharp intellect and a thirst for the truth. A woman uggling car pools and housework is not the first image that springs to mind but women have taken huge steps in the philosophy profession over the past 50 years. Still, this day, well-established women philosophers continue to face sexism from colleagues and students. This text is a collection of autobiographical essays by leading women in philosophy. It mines the experience of the generation that witnessed and helped create the remarkable advances now evident for women in the field. These women are leaders and innovators, looking back on how they have been treated, how they might have done things differently and how we might make progress in future generations.
