Book description

There has been a rising interest in the study of Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797) in philosophy, political theory, literary studies and the history of political thought in recent decades. The Wollstonecraftian Mind seeks to provide a comprehensive survey of her work, not only placing it in its historical context but also exploring its contemporary significance. Comprising 38 chapters by a team of international contributors this handbook covers:

  • the background to Wollstonecraft?s work
  • Wollstonecraft?s major works
  • the relationship between Wollstonecraft and other major philosophers
  • Wollstonecraftian philosophy
  • Wollstonecraft?s legacy

Essential reading for students and researchers in philosophy, Wollstonecraft?s work is central to the study of political philosophy, literature, French studies, political thought, and feminism.
