Women's Ways of Knowing


Product Description
Product Details


From interviews with 135 women (mostly privileged college students) regarding their search for truth and knowledge, the authors (all female faculty members of colleges or universities) determine five learning ``perspectives'' that characterize ``women's way of knowing.'' The somewhat philosophical text, which skillfully blends narration, documentation, and excerpts from interviews, sees higher education's teaching methods as more responsive to male ``impersonalness'' than female ``connectedness'' and recommends ways to improve the situation. On the whole, a work ironically geared more to the dialectician or feminist scholar than to the ``integrated constructivist'' or ``passionate knower.'' For large public and academic libraries.
