A feminist approach to the history of modern philosophy reveals new insights into the lives and works of major figures such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau and David Hume, and is crucial to an appreciation of the advent of feminist philosophy. Feminism and Modern Philosophy introduces students to the main thinkers and themes of modern philosophy from different feminist perspectives, and highlights the role of gender in studying classic philosophical texts.

This book shows how the important figures in the history of modern philosophy have been reinterpreted by feminist theory, including:
* feminist critiques of Descartes' rationalism
* Locke's 'state of nature' as it relates to the family
* the charges of misogyny levelled against Kant

In addition, the book introduces lesser-studied texts and interpretations, such as:
* the metaphysics of Leibniz's contemporary, Anne Conway
* Annette Baier's recent presentation and defence of Hume

Feminism and Modern Philosophy: An Introduction is written in an accessible and lively style, and each chapter ends with a helpful annotated guide to further reading. It will be appropriate for philosophy as well as gender studies courses looking at the development of modern western thought.
