ISBN-13: 9789004174696

Vincent Guillin makes use of the difficulty of sexual equality as a prism in which to envision very important changes - epistemological, methodological and theoretical - among Auguste Comte and John Stuart Mill. He succeeds in exhibiting how their differing conceptions of technological know-how and human nature impression and have an effect on their respective ways to philosophy and to the research of girl (in)equality specifically. Guillin shines a shiny searchlight into long-neglected points of either men's pondering - for instance, Mill's idea to build an 'ethology', or technological know-how of character-formation, and Comte's doubtless weird and wonderful curiosity in phrenology - and the ways that those formed their perspectives of women's highbrow and political capacities. Guillin's wide-ranging research examines either men's significant and minor works, their correspondence with each other, and the explanations for the ultimate acrimonious holiday among of the 19th century's most unusual and significant thinkers.
