Reflections on Gender and Science


Reflections on Gender and Science Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why are objectivity and reason characterized as male and subjectively and feeling as female? How does this characterization affect the goals and methods of scientific enquiry? This groundbreaking work explores the possibilities of a gender-free science and the conditions that could make such a possibility a reality.Keller's book opens up a whole new range of ideas for anyone who cares to think about the history of science, that is, the history of the modern world. . . Let us be glad to be in times when such a sparkling, innovative. . . book can be produced, a book to start all of us thinking in new directions.-Ian Hacking, New RepublicA brilliant and sensitive undertaking that does credit not only to feminist scholarship but, in the end, to science as well.-Barbara Ehrenreich, Mother JonesThis book represents the expression of a particular feminist perspective made all the more compelling by Keller's evident commitment to and understanding of science. As a lively and important contribution to the scholarship of science, it will undoubtedly stimulate argument and controversy.-Helen Longino, Texas HumanistProvocative arguments, presented with authority.-Kirkus ReviewsConsistently thoughtful, provocative, and interconnected. . . A well-made book that will be useful in upper-level undergraduate and graduate women's studies, philosophy, and history of science.-E.C. Patterson, ChoiceWritten with grace and clarity, this book] will stand as an important contribution to feminist theory, to the sociology of knowledge and to the continuing critique of the established scientific method.-Lillian B. RubinA powerful book.-Jessie Bernard
