Directory of Women Philosophers Revision

A project for the Collecting and Visualisation of the biographies, theories, literature and concepts of Women Philosophers

We are currently working on a revision of our Directory of Women Philosophers. At the moment you can find 73 selected philosophers on the new directory surface, which we continuously equip with a new design and with further contents.

The Directory gives an overview of women philosophers and scientists from approx. 2300 BCE to the 21st century. Currently, there are more than 240 names of women philosophers listed and the entries will be periodically updated with biographical information and sources for further research. The entry on each philosopher shows detailed biographical information as well as an extensive list of primary and secondary sources, including texts, online sources and video material. Important quotes as well as links to key concepts by the philosophers in the ECC are also available. The Directory is still in development and entries are being updated continuously.

You can see the first redesigns in the directory contributions of:

Emilie Du Châtelet
Harriet Taylor Mill
Elisabeth of Bohemia
Edith Stein
Olympe de Gouges

The complete Directory List with all entries can be found as usual here.
