Abstract

Criticisms of Science search for the origin of the persistent association between 'science, production, masculinity and objectivity'. Therefore, it takes as its point of departure the dichotomy-based foundations of the modern society, as these dichotomy-based foundations construct the actual context of scientific research. At the same time, it is questioned whether this association between science, production, masculinity and objectivity is handed down today by means of educational processes and socialization. The well-know feminist psychoanalyst Nancy Chodorow offers a plausible explanation for the association 'masculinity-objectivity-detachment' versus 'femininity-capacity of connecting.' This article also describes the origins and developments of women studies, and pays attention to the debate over changing from a women-studies approach to a gender-studies approach. At the same time, the author clarifies some consequences of a gender approach for the daily activity of science production, by means of concrete examples.
