This is the first book about the women of the early American Idealist movement in philosophy. The movement started in St. Louis, Missouri in 1858, becoming more influential as women joined and influenced its development. Many of these women were pioneers in feminist thought, in the expansion of education, and of the woman's role in it as teachers and scholars. Chief among them were Susan E. Blow, Anna C. Brackett, Grace C. Bibb, Ellen M. Mitchell, and Marietta Kies. This book devotes a chapter to the life, practical work, and philosophical ideas of each of them. These were the first American women as a group to plunge into philosophy proper, bridging those years between the amateur, paraprofessional, and professional academic philosopher. Dorothy Rogers' new book at last gives them the attention they deserve.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is the first book about the women of the early American idealist movement in philosophy. The book devotes a chapter to the life, practical work, and philosophical ideas of each. 'Dorothy Rogers has given us an excellent account of the women who played an important role in the two dominant nineteenth-century idealist movements in America: the St. Louis Hegelians and the Concord School of Philosophy. This is an important work that will be crucial to many who want to study the role of women in philosophy, or in the intellectual climate more broadly.' Dr Cornelis de Waal, Indiana University"
