This work explores the relationship between Mary Wollstonecraft's moral, political, social, and aesthetic philosophy.
BooknewsBahar (English literature, U. of Geneva) examines Wollstonecraft's attempts to revise models and representations of women, to give them a more active role in public life. Wollstonecraft's position is compared to that of other 18th century writers, including Anna Laetitia Barbauld, Edmund Burke, William Godwin, Catherine Macaulay, Richard Price, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Adam Smith, to show her rethinking of major concepts in moral, aesthetic, political and social philosophy, and ways in which her ideas were misread.
