Sample text

ForSchopenhauer, women exist for the propagation of the species. In addition, marriage is a woman's only access to all the good things of the earth-which are possessed by men. Mill, Putnam, and Gilman, interestingly enough, also recognize this economic fact. Mill, rejecting the rightfulness of men's ownership of these things, suggests that, with the sexes' natural attraction to one another, each has about the same natural interest in their relationship. de Beauvoir, too, argues that the relation between men and women is most natural and just as important to each.

With Schopenhauer, Santayana, and Kant, it becomes necessary to ask whether the friendship is to be with other women or with men. Where Schopenhauer and Kant see a fundamental rivalry among women, Santayana sees the possibility of friendship-a friendship, based on mutual understanding, rendered impossible between women and men by the great difference between their understandings.
