Summary:
Mary Astell: Reason, Gender, Faith includes essays from a variety of disciplinary perspectives to consider the full range of Astell's political, theological, philosophical, and poetic writings. The volume's contributors show Astell to have had few parallels among her contemporaries, bestowing upon her the attention that she deserves-not merely as a proto-feminist, but as a major figure of the early modern period.
