Female philosophers are often overlooked due to the patriarchal dominance of ideas over the last two and a half millennia.  This day course will celebrate the contributions made by two towering female philosophers of the twentieth century, Hannah Arendt and Simone de Beauvoir, including The Banality of Evil and The Second Sex.
