Online Seminar Series
On Reading Six Women Artists/Thinkers –
Personal Truths, Metaphors, and the Public Sphere
Sunday, May 21, 2023
In this series,
we will explore diverse writings of women ranging over four centuries, texts that are both timely and timeless. Starting with Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Women (1794), we will move through arguments from the public sphere—including Hannah Arendt’s Truth and Politics (1954) and Eva Brann’s Is Equality an Absolute Good? (2022)—to those dealing with the more personal truths found in literature, culminating in Jane Austen’s Persuasion. Thinkers and artists alike, including Martha Nussbaum and Iris Murdoch, will help guide our conversations to those aspects of dialogue that underlie civil discourse with explorations of Rational Emotions (Nussbaum) and The Sovereignty of Good (Murdoch).
