Feeling the Way to Truth | Christia Mercer || Radcliffe Institute

As part of the 2017–2018 Fellows' Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Christia Mercer RI '19 argues that we need to rethink core assumptions about the development of modern philosophy and that the writings of women played a much more significant role in its development than has been recognized.

Mercer is the Gustave M. Berne Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University, general editor of the Oxford Philosophical Concepts series, and coeditor of Oxford New Histories of Philosophy, a book series devoted to making philosophy more inclusive. She is the 2018–2019 Mildred Londa Weisman Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University.
