Summary

  • Wollstonecraft informs the reader she had intended to divide this work into three parts, but she has decided to "present only the first part to the public" and will present a second volume later.

Analysis

Wollstonecraft never published a second volume, but it is important to keep that intention in mind while reading. In some places this volume reads as a rough draft, not organized as logically as one might expect a philosophical text to be. Wollstonecraft's plan to release a second volume might have provided additional examples or better-crafted arguments to supplement this work, although she makes quite a strong case with this single volume.
