Philosophy of Science after Feminism

In this monograph Janet A. Kourany argues for a philosophy of science more socially engaged and socially responsible than the philosophy of science we have now. The central questions feminist scientists, philosophers, and historians have been raising about science during the last three decades form Kourany's point of departure and her response to these questions builds on their insights. This way of approaching science differs from mainstream philosophy of science in two crucial respects: it locates science within its wider societal context rather than treating science as if it existed in a social, political, and economic vacuum; and it points the way to a more comprehensive understanding of scientific rationality, one that integrates the ethical with the epistemic. Kourany develops her particular response, dubbed by her the ideal of socially responsible science, beyond the gender-related questions and contexts that form its origins and she defends it against a variety of challenges, epistemological, historical, sociological, economic, and political. She ends by displaying the important new directions philosophy of science can take and the impressive new roles philosophers of science can fill with the approach to science she offers.

Three brilliant scientists harness the power to fold time and visit the past and future like a common tourist. One scientist formulates a tour of Biblical events because he believes in God, but the tour is reluctantly and accidentally traveled by a scientist who does not. What will unbelieving eyes see, and how will they interpret the most significant supernatural events of all time? The tour embraces world history from the beginning of creation and into the future, where Biblical prophecy tells us that dangerous people will control the whole world, countless millions of people will evaporate, and society will plunge into darkness. What if a time traveler visited just two years into the future after the Biblical Prophetic clock has already started ticking? And then catapulted into the past, where Earth is like another planet entirely? What kind of world, and what kind of tribulation would he find? And as an unbeliever, how would he respond to it? Light deals with the issues of Biblical prophecy, recent young-earth creation, a literal and startling twist on how things were, and how things will be. Set aside the notions of being left behind, and embrace the idea of being brought along, in the circuits of Earth’s end-to-end timeline. Enter a future we’d rather forget, and a history that nobody remembers.

The Rendille camel nomads have for many centuries lived and moved with their herds of camels, goats, sheep and entire homesteads in the semi-desert and open bush land of northern Kenya in a vast area, too dry for growing crops or even for herding cattle like the Maasai. In the 1970's Anders Grum, a Danish architect and his family lived and moved for seven months with one nomadic Rendille settlement of 52 houses to study the habitation and migration of the camel nomads. As one source of understanding the Rendille way of life he collected traditional tales and myths. In this volume they are presented with more than 200 photographs of traditional Rendille nomadic life in the 1970's. The 81 stories give us a picture of the grandiose, but harsh environment; of tricksters and fools, cleverness and greed, of hardship and bravery, love and sex, and not least of respect for the camel.

Eighty-two-year-old Cal Brenneman is dying. As he lies in his hospital bed, his mind wanders in and out of the past, reliving the events that changed not only his life but the lives of his family -- a death in an icy creek, his first love in WWII England, and a violent 1980 morning in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado where Cal does something that even twenty years later his children find difficult to discuss. Shadowing Cal's life is the story of Emily Campbell, a Scottish girl whose lover dies in Cal's ambulance on a Salisbury landing strip during WWII. Just before dying, RAF Captain Connor McLaughlin hands a photo of Emily to Cal and pleads with him to deliver to her a tobacco pipe that had once belonged to her dead father. The return of the pipe sets in motion a chain of events that culminates in a deathbed visit by a millionaire claiming to be Cal's son. Blink Once to Spread Snow is a moving story that resonates with the spirit of family and the consequences of love, loss, guilt, and betrayal. A story of how Cal Brenneman, during the last few minutes of his life, blinks once and spreads snow one last time.
