9780300039993: Reclaiming a Conversation: The Ideal of Educated Woman

In this book Jane Roland Martin joins in conversation with five philosophers Plato, Rousseau, Mary Wollstonecraft, Catharine Beecher, and Charlotte Perkins Gilman about how women should be educated in an ideal society, and she draws out implications for the education of both sexes today.
A timely and important contribution both to feminist theory and to the philosophy of education.” Carol Gilligan, Harvard University
Fascinating. . . . The juxtaposition of views, together with Martin’s critical comparisons, illuminates each account.” Martha Nussbaum, New York Review of Books
Martin’s careful work shows [that]. . . a serious effort to design ideal education for women makes it necessary also to rethink men’s schooling. This is an important book.” Library Journal
Martin has provided a uniquely valuable service to educators.” Sandra Harding, Journal of Education
This is a decidedly intelligent and well-written book.” Margaret Canovan, Times Higher Education Supplement
The book ends with questions rather than answers: how best can each of us reflect all things human in our own lives, and how can education prepare us to do so effectively? The great strength of Martin’s work is the historical resonance that it gives both to these questions and the understanding of their fundamental importance for men and women alike.” Margaret Rouse Bates, Signs
Selected as an American Educational Studies Association’s Critics Choice” book for 1986

From Library Journal:

Feminist research has documented classroom bias, explored sex differences in learning, and proposed ways to incorporate the study of women. Martin, a philosopher, considers the unexamined assumptions that control efforts to construct an education that will produce the adults a society wants. Analyzing proposals for women's education written by Plato, Rousseau, Wollstonecraft, Catharine Beecher, and Charlotte Gilman, Martin asks critical questions about the consequences of educational theory. Her careful work shows the impossibility of just ``adding women''a serious effort to design ideal education for women makes it necessary also to rethink men's schooling. This is an important book, but rather heavy going for nonspecialists. Sally Mitchell, English Dept., Temple Univ., Philadelphia
