Description - Philosophia by Andrea Nye
"Philosophia" brings together the work of three major women thinkers of this century: Rosa Luxemburg, Simone Weil and Hannah Arendt. The text explores the continuities and developments of their views on justice, knowledge, the self, divinity, and the way philosophical problems have been framed in the mainstream masculine tradition. The author explains that the link between these women is not that they express the same ideas, or even that they have a common feminine style, but that each keeps her philosophical theorizing in constant contact with experienced reality. Always thinking about and through the catastrophic changing events of the 20th century, they produced a developing and deepening commentary on the human condition. Nye suggests this might be a better resource than traditional philosophy, for those struggling against sexism, racism and injustice.
