I’m teaching intro to philosophy next semester, and I’ll be doing it via some focus on the problem of skepticism, the mind-body problem, and the problem of free will, primarily with an eye towards work done on these issues in the past 100 years.
I’m looking for accessible but philosophically rich pieces by women philosophers on these things, especially on skepticism and the mind-body problem parts of the course. Ideally they would be fairly well-known or even “contemporary classic” pieces on, for example, functionalism, identity theory, external world skepticism, and so on. The standard intro to philosophy text I would otherwise like to use has only white males in these sections of the text.
I’m wondering if readers of Feminist Philosophers have any recommendations for me about what might be especially promising pieces for use in an undergraduate classroom.
Thanks in advance.
