Online event: Women in Nineteenth Century Philosophy

27 March – 8 May 2024, Organised by Alison Stone (Lancaster)

The seminar series on Women in Nineteenth Century Philosophy draws together scholarship rediscovering women philosophers from nineteenth-century Britain who have been unjustly left out of the philosophical canon. The talks introduce these women and their thinking on such topics as feminism, animals, metaphysics, religion, science and Darwinism.
