520    Mary Astell: Reason, Gender, Faith includes essays from 
       diverse disciplinary perspectives to consider the full 
       range of Astell's political, theological, philosophical, 
       and poetic writings. The volume does not eschew the more 
       traditional scholarly interest in Astell's concerns about 
       gender; rather, it reveals how Astell's works require 
       attention not only for their role in the development of 
       early modern feminism, but also for their interventions on
       subjects ranging from political authority to educational 
       theory, from individual agency to divine service, and from
       Cartesian ethics to Lockean epistemology. Given the vast 
       breadth of her writings, her active role within early 
       modern political and theological debates, and the 
       sophisticated complexity of her prose, Astell has few 
       parallels among her contemporaries. Mary Astell: Reason, 
       Gender, Faith bestows upon Astell the attention which she 
       deserves not merely as a proto-feminist, but as a major 
       figure of the early modern period
