        It's literally an atheist *refuting* popular *atheist* claims.

      Good. Who the frick cares? If slavery is needed for great intellectual achievements then I'm all for slavery. Especially if the people enslaved are natural slaves like Egyptian fellahin. Superior Greeks enslaving browncels is based. Slavery is based. Philosophy is based.

        I can't tell who's dumber, the dogmatic anti-theist who wants to hang onto a mythicized version of history, or the theist who won't accept probity when exercised by his erstwhile opponents to his benefit.

          I didn't even dispute anything said in that article. I just think his complaining that "waah she was an evil exploiter of the peasants and slaves" is moronic. It's based that her class exploited slaves to provide leisure time for themselves.

    Murdoch, Arendt, LRB, etc.

    And if you want to look more at theology and mysticism you get a lot more, people like Hildegard.

        Nancy Cartwright would be another. One of the bigger names in philosophy of science of her era.

    Hypatia is peak meme. It basically means you're liking a philosopher not for works but for gorey death stories. It's not even a philosophical death story, like Chrysippus, and none of the people pretending to like her pretend to like anyone like Zenodotus or even DL. They don't even like Arete of Cyrene who would back some of their life choices. Anyone who says it's their fave philosopher or even just fave female philosopher doesn't like or read philosophy, and don't know anyone female with extant works, but they do like the idea of skinning women.

    Theist here if it matters. Also a philosophy graduate. Indeed, I agree Hypatia is a lame atheist meme. Muh glorious pagan killed by meanie ignant ancient xtians. If you want to simp an ancient philosopher without any extant works, I would say Diotima is a much more patrician choice...

    Anyway. Lotsa good femme philosophers. Or at least a good handful exist. Here are some off the top of my head...

    >Philosophy proper:
    Anne Conway
    Iris Murdoch
    Edith Stein
    GEM Anscombe
    Hannah Arendt (bit shit tho)
    Simone de Beauvoir (hella shit tho)
    Judith Butler (pure shit tho)
    Simone Weil
    Catherine Pickstock
    Catherine Malabou
    Alenka Zupancic
    Julia Kristeva
    Ayn Rand (loljk)
    >Theology:
    Theresa of Avila
    Catherine of Sienna
    Julian of Norwich
    Marguerite Porete

      So basically not a single woman in history is known for having been a first rate philosopher in the class of Heidegger, Wittgenstein, Plato... ?

        >First rate
        >Wittgenstein
        I highly doubt he's a regular name in another hundred years. He was the poster boy for the Boomer movement of calling everything a pseudo problem and pretending philosophy could be "solved" by turning it into therapy. His philosophy of language in particular is extremely obvious shit medievals already took for granted and only seems ground breaking in the context of moronic positivism.

        >Heidegger
        Might fare better, still not a Plato by any means.

        These two seem closer to Arendt than Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, etc.

          Throughout the 2500 years history, there were, like, just 2 first-rate prophet-tier philosophers at all: Plato and Nietzsche.
          It's a very small sample to base conjectures on.

          Well, then please explain where Wittgenstein is wrong. Quoting P. M. S. Hacker:
          >I’ll try to briefly explain Wittgenstein’s solution of a great problem of philosophy in the Tractatus. Propositions of logic had for centuries, puzzled philosophers. They appear to be necessary truths—that is, to be true come what may. They seemed to be known independently of any empirical evidence—by reason alone. They are certain, timeless, and irrefragable—boundary stones set in eternal foundations which our thought may overflow but never displace—as Frege wrote. Indeed, Frege held that such truths describe timeless relationships between propositions. Russell held that propositions of logic were the most general truths about the universe, concerning perfectly general relationships between properties, relations, and facts. Wittgenstein showed that they were both mistaken. The necessary truths of logic are not about anything. They are not generalizations at all (‘Either it is raining or it is not raining’ tells you nothing about the weather and is not a general truth at all; but it is a truth of logic). Rather, they are limiting cases of propositions with a sense. For although they are well-formed, they are so combined by truth-functional connectives that all content cancels out. They are necessary only because they exclude nothing. So they are senseless (not nonsense), have zero sense, as it were, and say nothing. Indeed, one might say, all logical truths say exactly the same, to wit—nothing. That is why logic is not a science with a subject matter, but a calculus. This insight was one of the great advances in 20th-century philosophy of logic, and had a great impact on the Vienna Circle.

            Utterly plebeian. As mentioned prior, only insightful given the degenerate nature of analytic philosophy. But what should one expect of a israelite who purposefully ignored the canon cause he thought he was le genius?

        You're telling on yourself for not reading if you don't recognize the genius of some of the names on the list here:
