about this book

In her collection of essays on the relationship between feminism, science, nature, and the evolution of Western culture, Pulitzer prize finalist Susan Griffin boldly argues that the ways in which society subordinates women are (not accidentally) very similar to the ways in which Western culture attempts to achieve dominion over nature. Together, these essays are a startling journey that highlights the connections between religion and philosophy, science and nature, Western thought and the role of women, and emphasizes the supremacy of abstract thought over the forces of life.
