Editorial Reviews


'Potter not only tells the reader (clearly, systematically) what the central philosophical issues are in this area and how feminist philosophers have responded to them, but also shows what is involved in engaging them. She immediately draws readers into thinking through the issues that animate feminist analysis of science. What's more, she charts a course forward that holds great promise for both feminist and philosophical thinking about science.' - Alison Wylie, Stanford University, USA

Format: Paperback
I just used this book in a course and it worked beautifully to give students an overview of the debates over facts and values, objectivity, and bias. This is not just a book that summarizes though, but also one that advances a clear argument about how to understand the social dimensions of science. It also usefully includes a discussion of both natural and social sciences--a rarity in philosophy of science books. Wonderful introduction!
