Astell, Maria

Astell, Maria, Maria, die Tochter eines Kaufmanns in Newcastle, war im Jahre 1668 geboren. Eine sorgsame Erziehung brachte bald ihre außerordentlichen Talente für die abstrakten Wissenschaften zur Reise. In ihrem 20. Jahre verließ sie Newcastle, und zog nach London, wo sie ihren Wohnsitz nahm. Sie schrieb mehrere Abhandlungen über Erziehung, Religion, den Ehestand u. s. w., die sämmtlich eben so tief aufgefaßt, als treffend ausgeführt sind. Im Jahre l700 gab sie ihr bekanntestes Werk: An Essay in Defence of the female Sexe by a Lady heraus, dem bald ein Essay of Peace and War folgte. Maria Astell starb in Chelsea den 11. Mai 1731.
