Kick off Women's History Month with "Science and Gender" on Philosophy Talk

What does gender have to do with science? The obvious answer is ‘nothing.’ Science is the epitome of an objective, rational, and disinterested enterprise. But has male dominance in science contributed certain unfounded assumptions or cognitive biases to the ‘objectivity’ of scientific inquiry? Is there any possibility of achieving a gender-neutral science, and if so, what would that look like? John and Ken make room at the table for Stanford historian Londa Schiebinger, author of Gendered Innovations in Science and Engineering, in a program recorded live at the Marsh Theatre in Berkeley. Philosophy Talk with John Perry and Ken Taylor ~ Sunday, 3/02 at 10am.
