The Concept of Woman, Volume 3

by Sister Prudence Allen, R.S.M. | 01 February 2017
Category: Religion
This pioneering study by Sister Prudence Allen traces the concept of woman in relation to man in Western thought from ancient times to the present. In her third and final volume Allen covers the years 1500-2015, continuing her chronological approach to individual authors from the first two volumes and also offering systematic arguments to defend some philosophical positions over others. Building on her work from Volumes I and II, Allen draws on four "communities of discourse" - Academic, Humanist, Religious, and Satirical - and she traces several recurring strands of sex and gender identity from the Renaissance to the present. Now complete, Allen's magisterial study will be a valuable resource for scholars and students in the fields of women's studies, philosophy, history, theology, literary studies, and political science.
