ANALYSIS OF THE TERM CANON
DEBATE ABOUT THE FEMALE PRESENCE IN THE PHILOSOPHICAL CANON
The philosophical canon is currently being questioned by progressive globalization. For this reason, the inclusion of different cultures and both sexes in it is being sought from the academic field. This study will analyze the historical meaning of the concept ‘canon’ in order to determine what should be included in it, and how to do it. Thus, this research aims at (1) reconstructing the history of the concept ‘canon’ from its formation in the 4th century to the configuration of the philosophical canon in the 18th century, (2) developing an updated proposal for the realization of the philosophical canon, and (3) applying such proposal to substantiate the presence of women in the canon. The ultimate objective of this research would be to encourage academics to extend this methodology to achieve the desired recognition of the intellectual contribution made by the different groups that inhabit the Earth.
