The First International Conference on Women of Modern Philosophy will be held in Rio de Janeiro, 17th to 20th June 2019).
Rio de Janeiro is a national center of Early Modern Philosophy. All Brazilian researchers who confirmed participation in the meeting are heirs of that school of reading the history of philosophy with a method of conceptual analysis, with deep respect to the letter of the historical text. It will be a joyous occasion for the beginning of an exchange and network on Early Moderh Philosophy’s research with an eye to the rewriting of the philosophical canon.
The meeting is already on its preliminary arrangements. Works on the thoughts of Elisabeth of Bohemia, Margareth Cavendish, Catharine Trotter Cockburn, The two “Sophies”, Cristina of Sweden, Anne Conway, Émilie Du Châtelet, among other women, are expected.
