Feminism and Science by Evelyn Fox Keller

Book Description

Over the past fifteen years, a new dimension to the analysis of science has emerged. Feminist theory, combined with the insights of recent developments in the history, philosophy, and sociology of science, has raised a number of new and important questions about the content, practice, and traditional goals of science. Feminists have pointed to a bias in the choice and definition of problems with which scientists have concerned themselves, and in the actual design and interpretation of experiments, and have argued that modern science evolved out of a conceptual structuring of the world that incorporated particular and historically specific ideologies of gender. The seventeen outstanding articles in this volume reflect the diversity and strengths of feminist contributions to current thinking about science.

Books By Author Evelyn Fox Keller

Making Sense of Life by Evelyn Fox Keller Making Sense of Life, Paperback (November 2003)

What do biologists want? How will we know when we have 'made sense' of life? Explanations in the biological sciences are provisional and partial, judged by criteria as heterogenous as their subject matter. This text accounts for this diversity.

Refiguring Life by Evelyn Fox Keller Refiguring Life, Paperback (August 1996)

This text continues the author's study of how "scientific technique is both contributor to and product of discourse". It focuses on gender, and in particular, analyzes how the metaphors of information and communication technology affect biological research, especially in the field of genetics.

Keywords in Evolutionary Biology by Evelyn Fox Keller Keywords in Evolutionary Biology, Paperback (November 1994)

Written by renowned historians, philosophers and biologists, this collection of essays identify and clarify the meaning of terms in evolutionary biology which, though commonly used, possess complex concurrent and historically varying meanings.

Secrets of Life, Secrets of Death by Evelyn Fox Keller Secrets of Life, Secrets of Death, Paperback (March 1993)

The essays included here represent Fox Keller's attempts to integrate the insights of feminist theory with those of her contemporaries in the history and philosophy of science.
