Women in Philosophy

Jennifer Saul

Oxford University Press

There is by now a well-established body of research in psychology showing that human beings are strongly influenced by a range of unconscious biases and dispositions related to categories like race, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, etc. So far, there has been little to no empirical work on whether philosophers are influenced by these biases. But given that philosophers are human beings, it seems very likely that they are. This paper explores the effects these biases may be having in philosophy with respect to women, and proposes and explores some remedies philosophers could implement.
