The Well-Ordered Universe

The Philosophy of Margaret Cavendish

Deborah Boyle

  • Shows how Cavendish's natural philosophy developed and changed over time
  • Examines how Cavendish's concern with order pervades not just her metaphysical views but her views on social order, gender, human relationships with the natural world, and medicine
  • Argues that Cavendish's views on social roles and gender were largely conservative and traditional, and that she can be described as a feminist only in a very limited sense
