Read Judith Jarvis Thomson (1929–2020) by Ben Burgis (jacobinmag.com)
Judith Jarvis Thomson was one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century. Her justly famous essay in defense of abortion rights is a model for how to combine philosophical rigor with political engagement in the real world.
Interesting article. I’ll have to look at some other material Jacobin is putting out. Definitely a bit further to the left than is my usual taste, but seems generally well edited and topically interesting.
