About the Author

Anne M. Thell is Assistant Professor of English Language and Literature at the National University of Singapore.


"This modern edition of Cavendish's mature natural philosophy-Grounds of Natural Philosophy-is a welcomed addition to the growing body of her works receiving contemporary treatment. Professor Thell's superb introduction will provide the necessary context for the novice reader to appreciate Cavendish's complex and innovative thought, and it is a delight to read for the seasoned Cavendish scholar as well. Especially impressive is Professor Thell's drawing on literary theory, history of science, and philosophy to best elucidate the nuances and richness of Cavendish's work." - Karen Detlefsen, University of Pennsylvania"This superbly edited volume presents Cavendish's most mature philosophical work in all its glorious detail. Scholarly, historical, and deeply informative, Anne M. Thell's edition promises to enrich Cavendish studies for many years to come. It will attract both old and new readers alike and enhance their appreciation of this wonderfully unique contribution to seventeenth-century philosophy." - Jacqueline Broad, Monash University
