Mary Wollstonecraft and Feminist Republicanism : Independence, Rights and the Experience of Unfreedom

Forskningsoutput: Bok/rapportBok

Abstract

Mary Wollstonecraft is a writer whose work continues to provoke scholarly debate. But Wollstonecraft the historical figure often obscures her importance as a philosopher. Halldenius explores Wollstonecraft’s political philosophy, focusing on her treatment of republicanism and independence, to propose a new way of reading her work – that of a ‘feminist republican’. Wollstonecraft’s works of fiction and non-fiction are analysed and the use of her own experience of a lack of freedom (the lot of an eighteenth-century woman) is examined as a valid line of philosophical enquiry and not – as others have viewed them – as a form of autobiography.
