0 Reviews
Here is a timely and informative introduction to a new phase of the ongoing feminist dialogue, reflecting the special dimension feminists have added to the debate over the positivist-behavioral paradigm. This provocative volume challenges long-held political values and ideologies, as well as the basic understanding of fundamental thought processes and methods of perception and cognition. Experts present two aspects of the current debate within feminism--the argument for including feminist perspectives in social science research versus the argument for a “humanist” and “pluralist” approach to political and philosphical inquiry.
