Exploding the gene myth : how genetic information is produced and manipulated by scientists, physicians, employers, insurance companies, educators, and law enforcers by Ruth Hubbard( Book )

29 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and French and held by 1,416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is human behavior genetic? Do we inherit our intelligence, our sexuality, our predispositions to illness or depression, or our particular talents through our genes? Newspaper headlines today tout genetic explanations of everything from cancer to alcoholism and criminality. But as Exploding the Gene Myth demonstrates, such explanations are nearly always exaggerated or unfounded, ignoring the complex interactions of genes with environment at every level. Like the eugenic theories of seventy-five years ago, the new genetic determinism serves a conservative social agenda, reflecting our society's eagerness to blame ill health and misfortune on individuals rather than on social and environmental conditions

Reeds in haar vroegste stellingnamen beweerde de feministische wetenschapskritiek dat de inbreng van vrouwelijke onderzoekers het theoretisch kader, de praktijk en de resultaten van het wetenschappelijk onderzoek drastisch zou wijzigen. In "Reinventing biology" toetsen de biologen Lynda Birke en Ruth Hubbard deze bewering aan de biologie. Zij gaan meer bepaald na hoe het biologisch onderzoek eruit zou zien als wetenschappers de voorwerpen van hun onderzoek - of dit nu dieren, planten, bacteriën of mensen zijn - niet zouden beschouwen als passieve objecten die volledig verschillen van de onderzoekers zelf, maar als actieve partners in het onderzoek, met een eigen geschiedenis, een eigen integriteit, het vermogen te reageren op de buitenwereld en in bepaalde gevallen zelfs met een eigen intelligentie. 13 auteurs uit verschillende disciplines benaderen deze vraagstelling op uiteenlopende wijzen: zo gaat Anne Fausto-Sterling bijvoorbeeld in op de zin en onzin van dierenexperimenten; een historisch artikel confronteert de traditionele scheiding tussen cultuur en natuur, tussen subject en object met de extreme gevolgen van de Nazi-theorieën over 'wilde' en 'getemde' natuur; een ander artikel pleit ervoor om de imperialistische drang van de moderne wetenschap, die erop gericht is flora, fauna en volkeren uit andere gebieden uit te buiten, om te buigen tot een democratische wetenschap die rekening houdt met feministische, ecologische en ontwikkelings-perspectieven
