Philosophy was dramatically reshaped in the 20th century by increased engagement with mathematical and scientific methods. A number of women offered interesting contributions to the development of early ‘analytic’ philosophy, logic, epistemology, and the philosophy science. In this lecture, I will give a brief overview of the work of Susan Stebbing, Alice Ambrose, Janina Hosiasson, Ruth Marcus, Ruth Manor, Susan Haack, and Gila Sher. This is largely an information session to raise awareness and reflect on the question of why contributions by these women philosophers are less widely acknowledged than those of their male counterparts.
