What do we miss seeing of reality when we don't include the feminine perspective? The feminine principle with all its unique qualities is restoring the lost soul to disciplines once limited by principles of logic, analysis, and reductionism. The experiences of contemporary scientists show how the unveiling of the feminine is enlivening modern science, infusing it with a new spirit of cooperation and compassion, and changing long-held ideas about progress and about what makes "good science".

"Her book has led me to think anew about science and about women in science."-Anna J. Harrison, past president of AAAS
