Abstract: About one-third of academic philosophers, from the level of undergraduate student to associate professor, are women. Our joint team of philosophers (Nieswandt, Hlobil) and psychologists (Maranges, Iannuccilli, Dunfield) conducted a series of surveys (n= 467) to investigate why women are less likely than men to study philosophy. We offer a three-factor model of possible determinants. What sets our study apart from previous investigations is that it provides inferential (rather than merely descriptive) statistics and that it meets current methodological standards of quantitative social research (as regards, e.g., literature review, item validation and sample).

The results to be presented are summarized in this blog post on the CPA’s website: https://www.acpcpa.ca/blogs/gender-ratio-in-philosophy-an-inferential-statistical-model-of-possible-determinants
