Feminist Approaches to Science. The Athene Series.
Bleier, Ruth, Ed.
This collection of papers explores the nature of contemporary science and attempts to further a view of science that is "different, better, feminist, and emancipating." Most of the papers were presented in their original form at a symposium, Feminist Perspectives on Science, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in April, 1985. Included are: (1) "Introduction" (Ruth Bleier); (2) "Science Seen through a Feminist Prism" (Marion Namenwirth); (3) "Critiques of Modern Science: The Relationship of Feminism to Other Radical Epistemologies" (Elizabeth Fee); (4) "Beyond Masculinist Realities: A Feminist Epistemology for the Sciences" (Hilary Rose); (5) "Primatology is Politics by Other Means" (Donna Haraway); (6) "Empathy, Polyandry, and the Myth of the Coy Female" (Sarah Blaffer Hrdy); (7) "Sex Differences Research: Science or Belief?" (Ruth Bleier); (8) "The Relationship between Women's Studies and Women in Science" (Sue V. Rosser); (9) "Taking Feminist Science to the Classroom: Where Do We Go from Here?" (Mariamne H. Whatley); (10) "Further Readings on Feminism and Science" (Susan E. Searing). Brief autobiographical sketches of the editor and contributors are provided in the last section. (CW)
