Over the past fifteen years, a new dimension to the analysis of science has emerged. Feminist theory, combined with the insights of recent developments in the history, philosophy, and sociology of science, has raised a number of new and important questions about the content, practice, andtraditional goals of science. Feminists have pointed to a bias in the choice and definition of problems with which scientists have concerned themselves, and in the actual design and interpretation of experiments, and have argued that modern science evolved out of a conceptual structuring of theworld that incorporated particular and historically specific ideologies of gender. The seventeen outstanding articles in this volume reflect the diversity and strengths of feminist contributions to current thinking about science.

Editorial Reviews

`This valuable collection leads the reader through the development of feminist thinking in the sciences. The well chosen pieces are republished here in carefully abridged form, and the collection should make an excellent teaching resource ... an engaging read as a single book, though itsstructure obviously renders it a useful trove for individual papers a number of which were formerly difficult to get hold of. All the papers in this very good collection show how a feminist perspective can reveal political aspects of inquiry, thereby serving the twin goals of objectivity andunderstanding in both science and philosophy. I hope that this volume finds its place on standard reading lists so that students and professionals alike may benefit.'Miranda Fricker, University of London, Brit. Jnl. for the Phil. of Sci.
