Overview

The Philosopher Queen is a collection of essays and monologues addressing deep questions about gender, race, science, and global politics, ideal for both students and lay readers. Weaving together philosophical analysis and narrative, Cuomo develops positions that resonate in a world where all truths are partial, yet the search for truth is more important than ever. Scholarly, humorous, and brazenly feminist, these inviting essays encourage us to reinvestigate war, sex, justice, and wholeness. They acknowledge the complexity of reality while holding fast to the promise of common values, and in the face of cynicism and violence they present a conception of ethics that aims toward flourishing.
