Rae Langton’s first book, published in 1998, was a highly original reinterpretation of the philosophy of Immanuel Kant. Since then, she has done significant work in moral philosophy and metaphysics, and has become one of the leading feminist philosophers in the English-speaking world. Langton is professor of philosophy at the University of Cambridge, and her most recent book is Sexual Solipsism: Philosophical Essays on Pornography and Objectification (OUP, 2009).
