Modern Women philosophers at the BSHP York, 9 April

The Annual British Society for the History of Philosophy Conference held at York 9-11 April features several talks (one and half symposia) on women philosophers. Unfortunately, the symposia run in parallel sessions, so you’ll have to choose between Metaphysics and Political philosophy.

Symposium: Early Modern Rejections of Dualism: From Materialism to Idealism (2)

Tom Stoneham, ‘Some undervalued reactions to Descartes: Princess Elisabeth, Henry More and Margaret Cavendish’
