Reflecting upon the recent growth of interest in feminist ideas of philosophy of science, this book traces the development of the subject within the confines of feminist philosophy. It is designed to introduce the newcomer to the main ideas that form the subject area with a view to equipping students with all the major arguments and standpoints required to understand this burgeoning area of study.

Arranged thematically, the book looks at the spectrum of views that have arisen in the debate. It is broadly arranged into sections dealing with concepts such as the notion of value free-science, values, objectivity, point of view and relativism, but also details the many subsidiary ideas that have sprung from these topics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Potter not only tells the reader (clearly, systematically) what the central philosophical issues are in this area and how feminist philosophers have responded to them, but also shows what is involved in engaging them. She immediately draws readers into thinking through the issues that animate feminist analysis of science. What's more, she charts a course forward that holds great promise for both feminist and philosophical thinking about science.' - Alison Wylie, Stanford University, USA
