Nature, Woman and the Art of Politics

Edited by Eduardo a Velásquez

With essay by Inger Sigrun Brodey: "When Vanity is a Virtue: Self-Regard in Adam Smith and Jane Austen”

“This impressive collection of previously unpublished essays examines the relationship between competing conceptions of “nature” and “woman.” By looking historically and comprehensively at the problems and questions associated with human thinking about nature and woman, the contributors strive to gain the proper vantage point from which to assess modern virtues and vices. Also taking note of important religious and literary contributions to thought on nature and woman, these essays present a broad range of claims from classical Greece to the present intended to stimulate modern thinking. Nature, Woman, and the Art of Politics will prove indispensable to scholars of philosophy, political science and women’s studies.”
