DAMARIS CUDWORTH MASHAM (1658/9-1708) AND HER PHILOSOPHICAL CONTEXT
Friday 3 October 2008
ST274/275, Stewart House, 32 Russell Square, WC1
In conjunction with the British Society for the History of Philosophy
Supported by the Mind Association and Italian Cultural Institute
Lady Damaris Masham was one of the first English women philosophers. She was the author of two works of moral philosophy, and of a biography of John Locke. Daughter of Cudworth, close friend of Locke, and correspondent of Leibniz, she has only recently begun to be given consideration as a philosopher in her own right. To mark the 350th anniversary of her birth (and 300th of her death), this conference, will highlight the new work on her philosophy and its context.
