The philoSOPHIA exhibition focuses on philosophical women and offers their thinking a public sphere. Who are they and what moves them?
Sophia, who appears in various philosophical and religious traditions as the personification of (divine) wisdom, stands symbolically for female-read persons in philosophy and shows a counter-image to the steretoypical image of the male philosopher. As the patron of the exhibition, Sophia points out that female philosophers, even though they are usually underrepresented, have always been part of philosophy and have made an essential contribution to its development. philoSOPHIA focuses on women philosophers and female philosophers and offers them a public forum for their thinking. Who are they and what moves them? What are their stories?
