Classic Philosophy for the Modern Man
At first glance, the book ‘Classic Philosophy for the Modern Man’ may seem like it has been written with the male gender in mind and in fact it also contains extracts from some of the great classical, male philosophers. But look a bit deeper and you will find that the author, Andrew Lynn, intends the term ‘Man’ to be the inclusive noun for both male and female.
This book contains lessons from classic philosophers of the past (and there weren’t many, if any classic and published female philosophers, it was a product of the unenlightened past). There is nothing unenlightened about these great minds anyway. Whether the minds belong to males or females makes no difference to the knowledge imparted to the reader.
