Abstract:

Feminism, Science, and the Philosophy of Science brings together original essays that examine issues at the intersections of feminism, science, and the philosophy of science. The volume is unique in incorporating essays by both feminist and mainstream philosophers of science. Contributors explore parallels and tensions between feminist approaches to science and other approaches in the philosophy of science and more general science studies. In so doing, they explore notions at the heart of the philosophy of science, including the nature of objectivity, truth, evidence, cognitive agency, scientific method, and the relationship between science and values. Contributors also explore the question of what categories should figure in the explanatory principles employed in the philosophy of science and how, if at all, feminist science scholarship bears on this issue.

Audience: Philosophers of science, feminist scholars in philosophy and epistemology, historians in science, sociologists and anthropologists.
