In The Jew’s Daughter, a now classic work of electronic fic
tion by Judd Morrissey, we see an image of a single, static
page. As the cursor passes over a highlighted word, por
tions of the page change, while some of the words stay the
same. Unlike the turning of the page in a book, where a
visual space is entirely overwritten, here only parts of the
page change, even as it maintains its overall formal stabil
ity. The pages of The Jew’s Daughter— if we

a coMplete and annotated English edition of The Merits of
Women is available as The Worth of Women in the University of Chi-

published in 1997). The same series includes an edition of Fonte’s

other works by Italian sixteenth-century women. Of special inter-

Because this book was not written for an audience of professional
philosophers, or even amateur ones for that matter, a fair number
of readers may be relatively unacquainted with the writings of the
three philosophers—Dewey, Kant, and Hegel—whose ideas fig-
ure most prominently in its pages. Some may wish to know more
not only about those three men and their ideas, but also about the
broader philosophical context of their work. Living in the computer
age, as we do, the easy way to satisfy that desire would be to turn on
one’s PC or Mac
If you’re ready to read one more book to learn more about how to teach effec-
tively, I suggest: Susan A. Ambrose, Michael W. Bridges, Michele DiPietro, Mar-
sha C. Lovett, and Marie K. Norman, How Learning Works: Seven Research Based
Principles for Smart Teaching ( John Wiley & Sons, 2010).

ber of straightforward lessons in this book that can help you find a way to improve
your craft: Robyn R. Jackson, Never Work Harder Than Your Students and Other
