phil 100 week 3

For this assignment, choose a female philosopher to study below, investigate her biography on the internet, and find a quote, saying, maxim, proverb, motto or precept that you find appealing in one of her works listed beside her name (All of the works listed have freely available English translations that can be found on the Internet, or you can find a saying on a quote warehouse site, as long as the quote is properly attributed to the work listed). Take this quote, saying, maxim, proverb, motto or precept and place it on an image that you believe captures or amplifies the meaning of the quote. On the image, reference the philosopher and the work you found the quote. (See the example below). Then, in a separate document (.docx), briefly explain your Philosophy Image, and why you chose the philosopher, quote and image.
