   schema:reviewBody ""This is a biography of one of the very earliest English women philosophers. At a time when very few women received more than basic education, Lady Anne Conway wrote an original treatise of philosophy: her Principles of the Most Ancient and Modern Philosophy, which challenged the major philosophers of her day - Descartes, Hobbes and Spinoza. Sarah Hutton's study places Anne Conway in her historical and philosophical context, by reconstructing her social and intellectual milieu. She traces her intellectual development in relation to friends and associates such as Henry More, Sir John Finch, F.M. van Helmont, Robert Boyle and George Keith. She also documents Conway's debt to Cambridge Platonism and her interest in religion - an interest which extended beyond Christian orthodoxy to Quakerism, Judaism and Islam. Her book offers an insight into both the personal life of a very private woman, and the richness of seventeenth-century intellectual culture."--Jacket." ;
