Meta-Philosophical Reflection on Feminist Philosophies of Science

This volume offers a meta-philosophical reflection on feminist philosophies of science. It emphasizes and discusses both the connections and differences between 'traditional' philosophies of science and feminist philosophies of science. The collection systematically analyses feminist contributions to the various philosophies of specific sciences. Each chapter is devoted to a specific area of philosophy of science: general philosophy of science, philosophy of biology, philosophy of climate sciences, philosophy of cognitive sciences and neurosciences, philosophy of economics, philosophy of history and archaeology, philosophy of logic and mathematics, philosophy of medicine, philosophy of psychology, philosophy of physics, and philosophy of social sciences. Since some of these areas have so far rarely been addressed by feminist philosophers, this new collection provides new angels and stimulates the debate on pivotal issues that are part and parcel of both 'traditional' philosophies of science and feminist philosophies of science. Using a range of different methodologies and styles, the essays all show great clarity in both arguments and contents. Maria Cristina Amoretti, Ph.D. in Philosophy, is a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Genoa where she also lectured the postgraduate courses of Methodology of human sciences, Visual communication, and Philosophy and logic of science. Previously, she had been research fellow at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Genoa, at the Department of Information Technologies and Communication, CNR, Rome (2010), and Visiting Research Fellow at King's College, London (2012-2013). Her main areas of specialization are philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, and epistemology. More precisely, she has been studying the natural basis and the social dimensions of mind, knowledge, and rationality, the interactions between thought and language, the debate between internalism and externalism about content, and some aspects of philosophy of medicine. The results of those researches were presented at many national and international congresses, and published in several articles and chapters, both in Italian and English. Among her books, she has authored 'La mente fuori dal corpo' (FrancoAngeli 2011) and 'Il triangolo dell'interpretazione' (FrancoAngeli 2008), co-authored 'Piccolo trattato di epistemologia' (Codice Edizioni 2010), edited 'Natura umana, natura artificiale' (FrancoAngeli 2010), and co-edited 'Reason and Rationality' (Ontos 2012), 'Disaccordo' (Mimesis 2012), 'Triangulation' (Ontos 2011), 'Knowledge, Language, and Interpretation' (Ontos 2008), and 'Conoscenza e verità' (Giuffré 2007).
