Description de l’éditeur

Margaret Cavendish had few friends in the philosophical community of her time. The sneering tone in which Cambridge Platonist Henry More reported her new book, Philosophical Letters to his friend and fellow philosopher, Anne Conway, is typical of the reception Cavendish was given by her contemporaries: I am also inform'd that the Marchionesse of Newcastle has in a large book confuted Mr Hobbs, Des Cartes, and myself, and (which will make your Ladiship at least smile at the conceit of it) Van Helmont also to boot.
