Who's Afraid of Charles Darwin? : Debating Feminism and Evolutionary Theory Paperback / softback

Description

The relationship between feminism and the biological sciences has always been particularly tense and hostile.

Feminists have been inclined not to trust what scientists had to say about the sexes, with science often being pronounced a Owhite, male enterprise.O But why should feminism and the biological sciences remain at odds? And what might be gained from a reconciliation? In Who's Afraid of Charles Darwin? Griet Vandermassen shows that, rather than continuing this enmity, feminism and the biological sciences, and in particular evolutionary psychology, have the potential and the need to become powerful allies.

Properly understood, the Darwinian perspective proposed in this volume will become essential to tackling the major issues in feminism.
