Essays on Woman is a compilation of seven self-contained essays presented in various settings by Edith Stein during her years as a Catholic laywoman and academic. Arranged thematically rather than chronologically, they present a synthesis of her teachings on woman’s nature, challenges and opportunities, including female education and professional opportunities; spirituality; the church, woman and youth; and woman’s value in national life.

This second, revised edition includes textual corrections, important new supplementary data, and previously unavailable material on the spirituality of the lay and religious woman.

Includes topical and place index and editors’ introductions for both editions.
