Sexual Visions: Images of Gender in Science and Medicine Between the Eighteenth and Twentieth Centuries

by Ludmilla J. Jordanova, L. J. Jordanova
 

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Noticeably deficient in the gratification of prurient interests. Jordonova (history, U. of Essex) argues that the concern of biological and medical sciences with such oppositions as male/female, reason/emotion, and science/nature, mediated the overall culture's preoccupation with sex roles and gender distinctions. A powerful and erudite contribution to the history and philosophy of science and the fields of women's studies, biology, art history and cultural studies. Annotation c.
