Reviews

Valuable contributions this work makes to the study of early American philosophy: it gives a rich context.” – Prof. Mary Ellen Waithe Cleveland State University

“The women philosophers who are the subject of successive chapters each are in the forefront of early philosophical movements in the United States. These are philosophers who were famous in their day, but are on the faded margins of history. Not for long! Their restitution to the canon of American thought is most welcome.” – Prof. Mary Ellen Waithe Cleveland State University
