The woman of reason : feminism, humanism, and political thought by Karen Green ( Book )
11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virtue, liberty, and toleration political ideas of European women, 1400-1800 by Jacqueline Broad ( )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume challenges the view that women have not contributed to the historical development of political ideas, and highlights the depth and complexity of women's political thought in the centuries prior to the French Revolution. From the late medieval period to the enlightenment, a significant number of European women wrote works dealing with themes of political significance. The essays in this collection examine their writings with particular reference to the ideas of virtue, liberty, and toleration. The figures discussed include Christine de Pizan, Catherine d'Amboise, Isabella d'Este, Elizabeth I, Katherine Chidley, Elizabeth Poole, Margaret Cavendish, Damaris Masham, Mary Astell, Elizabeth Carter, Catharine Macaulay, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Cornélie Wouters. These women actively contributed to the political practice and discourse of their times. Some of the women question their exclusion from political power and argue in favour of women's virtue, prudence, and capacity to govern. Others aim to demonstrate women's spiritual equality with men, to defend liberty of conscience, and to highlight the importance of education as a means to moral development. And some women explore the notion of female citizenship or attempt to come to terms with issues of religious freedom and religious toleration

Virtue ethics for women 1250-1500 by Karen Green ( )
12 editions published in 2011 in English and French and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book locates Christine de Pizan's argument that women are virtuous members of the political community within the context of earlier discussions of the relative virtues of men and women. It is the first to explore how women were represented and addressed within medieval discussions of the virtues. It introduces readers to the little studied Speculum Dominarum (Mirror of Ladies), a mirror for a princess, compiled for Jeanne of Navarre, which circulated in the courtly milieu that nurtured Christine. Throwing new light on the way in which Medieval women understood the virtues, and were repres
Dummett : philosophy of language by Karen Green ( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Karen Green offers a comprehensive introduction to Dummett's philosophy of language, providing an overview and summary of his most important arguments. She argues that Dummett should not be understood as a determined advocate of antirealism, but that his greatest contribution to the philosophy of language is to have set out the strengths and weaknesses of the three most influential positions within contemporary theory of meaning - realism, as epitomized by Frege the holism to be found in Wittgenstein. Quine and Davidson, and the constructivism which can be extracted from Brouwer
