    • SusanStebbing
      Susan Stebbing (1885-1943) fu la prima donna ad avere una cattedra universitaria in filosofia nel Regno Unito. Negli anni '30 scrisse una fortunata sintesi della logica formale e una critica radicale delle assunzioni filosofiche implicite nelle opere divulgative di Eddington e Jeans (Philosophy and the Physicists). Durante la seconda guerra mondiale fu cara a molti lettori attraverso alcuni libri che invitavano a tornare al pensiero razionale in rapporto alla politica del presente.
      Susan Stebbing (1885-1943) was the first woman to hold a philosophy chair in the United Kingdom. In the '30s she wrote a successful synthesis of ancient and modern logic, and a radical criticism of the philosophical assumptions implicit in the popular works of Arthur Eddington and James Jeans (Philosophy and the Physicists). In the dark years of WWII Stebbing was well known for some books that invited to return to rational thinking with respect to the present political facts.

    • Pragmatism and French Voluntarism
      Pragmatism and French Voluntarism, published in 1914, introduces us methodically into American pragmatism and into the many French anti-intellectualist currents of thought, which culminated in Bergson's philosophy. It is permeated with awareness of the deeply irrational and inconsistent statements which were in the epistemological currents of that time, and this awareness corresponds to a moral discomfort, clearly and strongly expressed, which invites us to further critical thinking.

    • Philosophy and the Physicists
      In this 1937 essay Stebbing analyzed the general philosophical conclusions that James Jeans and Arthur Eddington drew from the new quantum physics, as well as the many contaminations of their language with popular culture. The essay is an unitary cultural study about the position of natural science in the context of the twentieth century. Through ill-thought philosophical conclusions, science enters an area of indistinction with respect to the metaphors we build to make our existence justified.
