Feminist Philosophy

Who are some key feminist philosophers of science?

Sandra Harding (1935–) addresses questions of whether women have privileged ways of knowing, in Third World, as well as Euro-American societies, whether the exclusion of women from science can be corrected within science, and whether scientific knowledge is itself misogynistic. Harding’s groundbreaking work includes The Science Question in Feminism (1986) and Whose Science? Whose Knowledge? (1991). Janet Kourany (1943-) edited The Gender of Science (2002) and Scientific Knowledge (1987, 1998), which relate some of the feminist critique of traditional science to standing issues in mainstream philosophy of science.
