This paper examines Damaris Cudworth Masham's, also known as Lady Masham, first work, A Discourse Concerning the Love of God. Included is a transcription of Masham's original piece with annotations and an introduction. The introduction provides a detailed background of Masham's life from a child to an adult woman. The relationships Masham held throughout her life are reflective her in works. The Discourse, Masham's first work, is a relentless attack on the occasionalist movement lead by Nicholas Malebranche and further developed by John Norris. Norris, with whom Masham had a correspondence, advocated the occasionalist movement and deemed that man should love God with desire rather than benevolence. Masham, with the influence of John Locke, disagreed with Norris's view, deeming this to be absurd in accordance with God's infinite knowledge. More so, the Discourse is a way of Masham's expressing her deeply rooted empiricist perspective and her view against enthusiasm. Masham is one of the many women philosophers who continues to go unnoticed and discussed despite her obvious ability to discuss and contribute to philosophy. This thesis is an expression of the importance of women philosophers as a whole and represents a hope that one day the injustice of neglect towards women philosophers will come to an end.
