Riassunto: `Fun, droll yet deeply serious.' New Scientist `A brilliant feminist critic of the neurosciences ... Read her, enjoy and learn.' Hilary Rose, THES `A witty and meticulously researched expose of the sloppy studies that pass for scientific evidence in so many of today's bestselling books on sex differences.' Carol Tavris, TLS Gender inequalities are increasingly defended by citing hard-wired differences between the male and female brain. That's why, we're told, there are so few women in science, so few men in the laundry room - different brains are just suited to different things. With sparkling wit and humour, Cordelia Fine attacks this `neurosexism', revealing the mind's remarkable plasticity, the substantial influence of culture on identity, and the malleability of what we consider to be `hardwired' difference. This modern classic shows the surprising extent to which boys and girls, men and women are made - not born.
About the Author: Cordelia Fine is a Professor of the History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Melbourne. She is the author of much-acclaimed A Mind of Its Own (Icon, 2006) and Testosterone Rex (Icon, 2017).
