Description

..". absolutely splendid... the style is elegant, eloquent, and witty. Rose has a unique voice in the increasingly important feminist science and epistemology discussions. A superb accomplishment." Sandra Harding"This is a lively, contentious, important feminist book. Rose's wit and sharp eye and her commitment to thorough comparative historical analysis make for many pages of wonderful reading." Donna HarawayHilary Rose locates feminist criticism of science at the heart of both the women's movement and the radical science movement. Attending to the political economy of the production of knowledge and to what does and does not count as knowledge, she explores how women and minorities are affected by these processes. She examines at length the latest, massively resourced claimant to the old and oppressive "biology is destiny" dictum the Human Genome program.Rose's commitment to feminist resistance against the science and technology of oppression leads her to claim feminist science fiction with its imaginative capacity to envision different futures with different sciences and technologies as an ally of feminist science critics."show more
