A recently published work by Monash philosopher, Jacqueline Broad, is one of the first books to examine the ideas and arguments of a woman philosopher of the early modern era.
The Philosophy of Mary Astell: An Early Modern Theory of Virtue (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2015) illuminates the wider philosophical agenda underpinning Astell’s thought, and presents a clear, accessible account of a unique seventeenth-century theory of virtue
The book situates Astell’s philosophy within its historical and intellectual context.
