Abstract:

"Modern scientists, from the age of Galileo and Newton, have subjected nature - Mother Earth - to a typically masculine drive to control and exploit. Deftly drawing on insights from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein - the classic tale of science gone mad - and from the new field of feminist psychology, the author shows how centuries of male domination have distorted not only scientific research and development, but also our relationship to one another and to the natural world."--BOOK JACKET. "The Gendered Atom envisions a new, gender-free science that lies beyond sexual politics, respects our community with nature, and promises a healthier, more sustainable relationship between ourselves and the world we inhabit."--Jacket.
