Actors' Resumes: The Definitive Guidebook Damaris Cudworth Masham (1658-1708) was one of the very first English women to publish philosophical writings. Like all women of her period she was denied access to higher education, but she grew up accustomed to philosophical discourse as the daughter of Ralph Cudworth, the leading Cambridge Platonist. In 1685 she married Sir Francis Masham and went to live with him at Oates, Essex. For many years she was an intimate friend of John Locke; she also corresponded on philosophical topics with Leibniz. Lady Masham's two main philosophical works, A Discourse Concerning the Love of God (1696) and Occasional Thoughts in Reference to a Vertuous or Christian Life (1705) were published anonymously and caused a considerable stir. Both books have now become extremely rare, and Thoemmes Press here presents them in a single volume, prefixed by James G. Buickerood's new introduction.
