In The Gendered Atom, Theodore Roszak explores the uncharted depths of the scientific soul. There, beneath the scientist's rational, purportedly objective surface, Roszak finds a maelstrom of repressed sexual biases and gender stereotypes. Far from a purely objective view of the natural world, science down to the very conception of the atom is suffused with sexual politics. And the result, sadly, is a culture at risk from global warming, nuclear proliferation, toxic waste, genetic engineering, and more.
