Dialogues and addresses by Maintenon( )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born Françoise d'Aubigné, a criminal's daughter reduced to street begging as a child, Madame de Maintenon (1653-1719) made an improbable rise from impoverished beginnings to the summit of power as the second, secret wife of Louis XIV. An educational reformer, Maintenon founded and directed the celebrated academy for aristocratic women at Saint-Cyr. This volume presents the dialogues and addresses in which Maintenon explains her controversial philosophy of education for women. Denounced by her contemporaries as a political schemer and religious fanatic, Maintenon has long been criticized as an
A rule for children and other writings by Jacqueline Pascal( )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jacqueline Pascal (1625-1661) was the sister of Blaise Pascal and a nun at the Jansenist Port-Royal convent in France. She was also a prolific writer who argued for the spiritual rights of women and the right of conscientious objection to royal, ecclesiastic, and family authority. This book presents selections from the whole of Pascal's career as a writer, including her witty adolescent poetry and her pioneering treatise on the education of women, A Rule for Children, which drew on her experiences as schoolmistress at Port-Royal. Readers will also find Pascal's devotional treatise, which match

The suspicion of virtue : women philosophers in neoclassical France by John J Conley( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2018 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through biography, extensive translation, commentary, and critical analysis, The Suspicion of Virtue presents the work of women who participated in the philosophical debates of the early modern period but who have been largely erased from the standard history of philosophy. Conley examines the various literary genres (maxim, ode, dialogue) in which these authors presented their moral theory. He also unveils the philosophical complexity of the arguments presented by these women and of the salon culture that nurtured their preoccupations. Their pointed critiques of virtue as a mask of vice, Conley asserts, are relevant to the revival of virtue theory by contemporary ethicians."--Jacket

The other Pascals : the philosophy of Jacqueline Pascal, Gilberte Pascal Périer, and Marguerite Périer by John J Conley( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Other Pascals, Conley argues that Jacqueline Pascal, Gilberte Pascal Périer, and Marguerite Périer each developed a distinctive variant of the neo-Augustinian philosophy which functioned as their family's intellectual creed, and which most people know through their brother/uncle, Blaise. Jacqueline's mystical theology, with its acute apophatic sense of God's alterity, contrasts with her sister Gilberte's sober, pragmatic approach. Gilberte's Augustinianism, which downplays the conflicts within and without the Port-Royal circle, contrasts with her daughter Marguerite's accounts of the Pascal family, which highlights the conflicts as opportunities for the exercise of heroic virtue on behalf of the Augustinian theory of grace. Each had philosophical concerns independent of the thought of their brother. Both Jacqueline and Gilberte sketched their own Augustinian philosophy of education. Marguerite's ecclesiology, with its insistence on ecclesiastical fallibility even in matters of faith and morals, reflects the preoccupations of a later Jansenist generation. All three express a gendered concern about the rights of women to receive a serious theological education in the Augustinian mode and to intervene publicly in the ecclesiastical and political disputes of the age. While many studies of Blaise Pascal have noted the complex influence of Jacqueline and Gilberte Pascal upon him, this influence is usually seen as more emotive and religious than intellectual in nature. In this close-knit familial trio, Jacqueline and Gilberte often emerge as the caregivers, nurses, disciples, memorialists, and sparring partners of Blaise. Inevitably, Gilberte's biography of Blaise is included in any edition of Blaise Pascal's collected works"--
