Andrew Cooper New Voices Research Profile

I am currently working on a project on Amalia Holst’s critique of the German enlightenment. The project centres on a translation of her major work, On the Vocation of Woman to Higher Intellectual Development (Über die Bestimmung des Weibes zur höhern Geistesbildung, 1802), and will also include several papers and a monograph on her philosophy. Though an analysis of Holst’s radical pedagogy, which advocates for equal educational opportunities for men and women, the project interrogates the the neglect of women in the historiography of German philosophy.
