So here's another request.
I'm putting together my spring quarter syllabus for a course on those topics in philosophy of science which are more closely related to physics and metaphysics:
- determinism and causality
- the nature of laws
- time and space
But I'm shocked and embarrassed that my draft syllabus has only one female author on it (Nancy Cartwright, of course). It can't be too hard to find female authors, or can it?
Here are the criteria:
--on the above topics or providing a historical setting for philosophy of science or reflecting on the relationship between metaphysics and science;
--not too technical (these undergrads have had only a couple of prior philosophy courses and no physics);
--able to stand on its own (e.g., not a response to a prior article which would also have to fit in the syllabus);
--written by a woman.
