This pioneering new book brings together an important collection of original essays by leading philosophers exploring an extensive range of diverseissues for the philosophy of science and technology. The essays gathered in this volume extend current philosophical discussion of science and technology beyond the standard feminist and gender analyses that have flourished over the past two decades, by bringing a thorough and truly diverse set of cultural, racial and ethical concerns to bear on questioning in these areas. Science, and Other Cultures charts important new directions in ongoing discussions of science and technology and makes a significant contribution to both scholarly and teaching resources available in the field.
