Today a “new” field of philosophy has emerged which can be called simply “The Philosophy of Man and Woman”. Paradoxically, it is a field of study with a long and impressive history which began when the pre-Socratic philosophers first questioned their own identity in the midst of the world. Their questions fall into four broad areas:
1. How is the male “opposite” to the female?
2. What roles do male and female play in the generation and identity of offspring?
3. Are women and men wise in the same or different ways?
4. Are women and men good in the same or different ways?
