"This is an excellent introduction to philosophy of science as a challenged and
challenging terrain, and a rallying call for the return, or proliferation, of the public intellectual."--Anna Mudde, University of Regina, Canada, Philosophy in Review
"All of us in the field should take what Kourany says seriously and do our best to take part in the kinds of work she identifies in her excellent book." --John Forge, Sydney University, Australia, Notre Dame Philosophical Review
"This is an excellent and valuable book. Philosophy of science should matter-science is the dominant knowledge system of our age, and philosophers are supposed to be experts on knowledge--but it's sometimes hard to believe that a lot of it matters at all. Kourany here makes a serious and uncompromising attempt to figure out how we got to this point, and what we should do about it. This is the kind of book that should be widely read and talked about by students of philosophy of science as well as by professionals."--John Dupré, University of Exeter, United Kingdom, Perspectives on Science
"The book and its SRS [Socially Responsible Science] ideal have much to recommend them. Kourany demonstrates the ongoing relevance of the tradition of feminist epistemology and philosophy of science and argues compellingly for considering the social responsibilities of science and philosophy of science."--Matthew Brown, University of Texas at Dallas, U.S.A., Philosophical Studies
