The Philosophy of Gender Prejudice

Tuesday 19th November, 7.30 at the Rose and Crown, Tintern


Dr Vanessa Dodd

NEXT MEETING 19th November 2019

.This discussion arises out of our observations that the male members of our philosophy group tend to dominate, whilst female members, although interested in philosophy, are reticent in taking part in debate. My research has shown that this difference might be the result of a prejudice which is deeply rooted in Philosophy itself, traceable back to the Greeks, accelerated through the early Church and manifest in the writings of key philosophers. The talk explores whether the 'Mars/Venus' dichotomy is mythic (culturally indoctrinated) or innate (as propounded by evolutionary psychologists) or now successfully erased by postmodern  thinkers.
