Hamilton Beck Hippel (1741-1796) was the friend of Kant and mayor of Koenigsberg. This volume is an important contribution to the burgeoning debate on improving women's civic status, comparable to Wollstonecraft's "Vindication of the Rights of Woman." The translation unfortunately leaves much to be desired, as it ignores the frequent Biblical allusions.
