I just received the announcement for the 21st Anniversary issue of the British Journal of the History of Philosophy. The issue, which has good gender balance as far as authors are concerned, contains one favourite article from each of its 21 issues. Three of the articles chosen are written about female philosophers:
- Damaris Cudworth, lady Masham: Between Platonism and enlightenment,Volume 1 Issue 1 (2006) Sarah Hutton
- The philosophical innovations of Margaret Cavendish , Volume 7 Issue 2 (1999) Susan James
- The primacy of right. On the triad of liberty, equality and virtue in Wollstonecraft’s political thought,Volume 15 Issue 1 (2007) Lena Halldenius.
Perhaps not a roaring success, but – I feel – a success nonetheless.
