The Philosopher Queens: Week Two, Chapter Announcement and 80%!

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind, so we wanted to take a moment to update you on what’s been happening with The Philosopher Queens. First, a huge thank you to our new supporters (there are now 552 of you!). We are overwhelmed by your generosity in helping us reach the 80% milestone. A special shout-out to Corey Mohler from Existential Comics for publicly supporting the project and helping us spread the word.

On our side, we’ve been working hard to make sure the book will be ready as soon as possible and exploring some additional perks for our supporters if we get past the 100% mark.

We are also very happy to announce one of our final chapters will be…

Diotima to be written by Zoi Aliozi! Diotima was an ancient Greek philosopher who heavily influenced the teachings of Socrates, particularly his philosophy of love. Who wouldn’t want to learn about the woman who influenced the most famous philosopher in history?

Although we’re getting closer to our target, we still have a way to go so it’s important we keep up the momentum. If you’ve been meaning to share the page or have a few people in mind to message, now is the time!

Best wishes

Lisa and Rebeca
