This is another old project I never particularly got into.
I have plenty to say about this, and am particularly dismissive of the concept of measuring genius as something which can be seen in skill at chess, like IQ. There are entire fields of intellect which men on average are simply better at than women on average. The problem is that all the things women are themselves clearly better at on average aren't measurable (yet?).
See also Women in science.
Can some women be geniuses in the same sense that some men have been and are?
I think so, and probably in a unique way.
- Still subject to the same bipolar and autism spectrums.
There are definitely female (computer) hackers.
- I doubt they are in the same proportion as men. The man side of things is drowned in non-hackers so it's hard to know. Everything even closely related is swimming with mundanes so it has become a complex problem.
Oracles (probably heavy drug influence)
An essay to revive the ancient education of gentlewomen (1673)
Princess Elizabeth of Bchemia (1618-1680) was a critic of Descartes.
Margaret Newcastle - Dutchess of Newcastle (1623-1673) - published original natural philosophy.
John Locke supporters:
- Damaris, Lady Masham (1659-1708)
Catharine Cockburn (1673-1749)
I'm particularly interested in female philosophers. Actual original ones. .. and don't bother mentioning Rand.
