Summary

This chapter gives an overview of the book and argues that we have to re-think the idea of the grand dichotomy in political thought and reconstruct what it means to be political for early modern thinkers. It engages with the topic of exclusion of women from politics and argues that if we understand that Renaissance thinkers included an array of topics in what constituted the political, we will understand that gender was indeed a formative category in political thought.
