"The classic and recent essays gathered here will challenge scholars in the natural sciences, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, and women's studies to examine the role of racism in the construction and application of the sciences. Harding... has also created a useful text for diverse classroom settings." -- Library Journal

"A rich lode of readily accessible thought on the nature and practice of science in society. Highly recommended." -- Choice

"This is an excellent collection of essays that should prove useful in a wide range of STS courses." -- Science, Technology, and Society

"... important and provocative... "Â -- The Women's Review of Books

"The timeliness and utility of this large interdisciplinary reader on the relation of Western science to other cultures and to world history can hardly be overemphasized. It provides a tremendous resource for teaching and for research... "Â -- Ethics

"Excellent." -- The Reader's Review

"Sandra Harding is an intellectually fearless scholar. She has assembled a bold, impressive collection of essays to make a volume of illuminating power. This brilliantly edited book is essential reading for all who seek understanding of the multicultural debates of our age. Never has a book been more timely." -- Darlene Clark Hine

These authors dispute science's legitimation of culturally approved definitions of race difference -- including craniology and the measurement of IQ, the notorious Tuskegee syphilis experiments, and the dependence of Third World research on First World agendas.

Стр. 87 - I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.
Стр. 87 - I advance it therefore as a suspicion only, that the blacks, whether originally a distinct race, or made .distinct by time and circumstances, are inferior to the whites in the endowments both of body and mind.
Стр. 92 - I am apt to suspect the negroes and in general all the other species of men (for there are four or five different kinds) to be naturally inferior to the whites. There never was a civilized nation of any other complexion than white, nor even any individual eminent either in action or speculation.* No ingenious manufacturers amongst them, no arts, no sciences.
Стр. 81 - In a quite constant way, Orientalism depends for its strategy on this flexible positional superiority, which puts the Westerner in a whole series of possible relationships with the Orient without ever losing him the relative upper hand.
Стр. 189 - One hundred and fifty years of the experts' advice to women (New York: Pantheon, 1979). See also Janice Law Trecker, 'Sex, science and education', American Quarterly 26 (October 1974): pp. 352-66; and Margaret W. Rossiter, Women Scientists in America: Struggles and strategies to 1940 (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1982), especially the chapters titled 'A manly profession', pp.
Стр. 93 - We will walk on our own feet ; we will work with our own hands ; we will speak our own minds.
Стр. 92 - Such a uniform and constant difference could not happen, in so many countries and ages, if nature had not made an original distinction betwixt these breeds of men. Not to mention our colonies, there are Negroe slaves dispersed all over Europe, of which none ever discovered any symptoms of ingenuity; tho1 low people, without education, will start up amongst us, and distinguish themselves in every profession.
Стр. 27 - Romantics and racists it was simply intolerable for Greece, which was seen not merely as the epitome of Europe but also as its pure childhood, to have been the result of the mixture of native Europeans and colonizing Africans and Semites.
Стр. 362 - In the simplest formulation, when we use a metaphor we have two thoughts of different things active together and supported by a single word, or phrase, whose meaning is a resultant of their interaction.
Стр. 20 - Donna Haraway, Primate Visions: Gender, Race, and Nature in the World of Modern Science (New York: Routledge, 1989...
