Personal profile

Overview

I am specialising in Susan Stebbing’s philosophy in relation to critical thinking, formal logic, and informal logic. My current research focuses on looking into her life as a philosopher, bringing the specialist areas of work and contributions to attention and providing a diagnosis of reasons for neglect by historians of analytic philosophy and the marginalisation of her works. However, Stebbing has been overlooked in comparison to her male contemporaries, such as G.E. Moore and Bertrand Russell. I argue that Susan Stebbing should be considered as a ‘founder’ or ‘ancestor’ of Analytic philosophy as a prima facie tension exists in exhibiting the work of women philosophers despite the importance of their work.
