#6 The Philosopher Queen Elizabeth Anscombe (presented by Hannah Carnegy-Arbuthnott)

In the Philosopher Queens Seminar Series we learn about and discuss the work of philosophers from the book “Philosopher Queens” (ed. by Rebecca Buxton and Lisa Whiting, Unbound, 2020). The aim of this series is to introduce the audience, especially undergrad students, to the work of female philosophers and to bring attention to the issue of epistemic and structural injustice within the academic philosophy and philosophical ‘canon’. By asking contributors of the “Philosopher Queens” to participate in this event, we also wish to promote contemporary underrepresented philosophers.

Elizabeth Anscombe

Presented by Hannah Carnegy-Arbuthnott


In this edition of the Philosopher Queens Seminar Series we will learn about Elizabeth Anscombe (1919–2001), a British philosopher who worked on the philosophy of mind, logic, philosophy of action, and ethics.

The seminar starts with a presentation by Hannah Carnegy-Arbuthnott (University of York) who will introduce us to the life and work of Elizabeth Anscombe, followed by an open discussion based on the talk and a (optional) pre-circulated text.
