A feminist is a woman who does not allow anyone to think in her place.-from Hipparchias ChoiceA work of rare insight and irreverence, Hipparchias Choice boldly recasts the history of philosophy from the pre-Socratics to the post-Derrideans as one of masculine texts and male problems. The position of women, therefore, is less the result of a hypothetical femininity and more the fault of exclusion by men.

Nevertheless, women have been and continue to be drawn to the exercise of thought. So how does a female philosopher become a conceptually adventurous woman? Focusing on the work of Sartre and Beauvoir (specifically, his sexism and her relation to it), Michèle Le Doeuff shows how women philosophers can reclaim a place for feminist concerns. Is The Second Sex a work of philosophy, and, if so, what can it teach us about the relation of philosophy to experience? Now with a new epilogue, Hipparchias Choice points the way toward a discipline that is accountable to history, feminism, and society.
