Women in philosophy have always been seen as inferior to men. People had constructed this image of women as being less perfect and through this image, many philosophy were developed. Aristotle provided the first scientific explanation of women’s imperfection. He claimed that women were biologically inferior to men. Aristotle claimed that this was a factual statement, but he though it deserved “a rational scientific justification for this belief,”(Tuana,p.18).
Aristotle believed that heat was the fundamental issue in the perfection of animals and therefore humans. The more heat a creature produced the more perfect of a being it was. He believed that women were “colder than man,”(p.18) so obviously they were less perfect than him as well. This heat difference is what gave women all of her problems. The less heat of women, therefore lead Aristotle to believe that she had a smaller brain. This lead to her many problems dealing with inferiority.
