Workshop on Women in the History of Analytic Philosophy
27 October 2019
**Tilburg-Groningen Workshop on Women in the History of Analytic Philosophy**
The history of philosophy is generally presented as a history of male thinkers, and the history of analytic philosophy is no exception. From the birth of analytic philosophy to its maturing well into the twentieth century, female contributors formed a small minority and their work did not always receive the attention it deserved. Although Susanne Langer, Susan Stebbing, and Elizabeth Anscombe secured their place in the canon, more women played a significant role in the development of analytic philosophy. Recent studies have stressed the importance of for example Constance Jones, Janina Hosiasson, Maria Kokoszyńska, Margaret MacDonald, and Rose Rand for logic, philosophy of science, metaphysics, and philosophy of language during the early twentieth century.
On October 27, 2019, a workshop on women philosophers in the history of the analytic tradition will take place in Tilburg, organized by the Tilburg Center for Logic, Ethics, and Philosophy of Science (TiLPS) together with the Faculty of Philosophy in Groningen. The workshop brings together researchers interested in the life and work of women philosophers in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century, and their contribution to the development of analytic philosophy.
