Why aren't more women in science?: Top researchers debate the evidence
There are interesting differences between the average male and female mind. In using the word average, I am from the outset recognizing that such differences may have little to say about individuals. In addition, the differences are subtle and are to do with the relative proportions of different drives in the typical male and female mind. The field of sex differences in psychology in the 1960s and 1970s was so conflict-ridden as to make an open-minded debate about any potential role of biology contributing to psychological sex differences impossible.
Reviews the book, Religion and the Mind of To-day by Joseph A. Leighton. The author believes that, under the guidance of the special sciences, a new civilization is coming into being and that a reconstruction or intellectual recasting of our inherited religion and social ethics to guide and inspire this civilization is imperative. Professor Leighton here undertakes this recasting and places the essential teachings of Christianity in the setting of modern scientific thought and problems.
Robert Seidenberg's (see record 2007-10580-001) review of Mary Lou Randour's (see record 2006-05457-063) Women's psyche, women's spirit is critiqued and corrected from the perspective of a feminist theologian. The contrast between the psychological and religious approaches is noted with particular attention to the importance of feminist spirituality for social change and the substantive contribution of feminist analysis like Randour's for that task.
