Science, Sex and Subjectivity

Monday, May 28

Science is often seen as the unbiased pursuit of the truth. Yet some feminist thinkers argue these theories are limited by male language and logic. Is there a radically different and feminist way of doing science? And if there is, what would it look like and could it prove more powerful than our current account of the universe? Or is there only one form of rationality and one truth?

Philosophy of Science after Feminism author Janet Kourany, cognitive neuroscientist Gina Rippon, and author of Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong Angela Saini debate a feminist future for science.
