In The Gendered Atom, Theodore Roszak explores the uncharted depths of the scientific soul. There, beneath the scientist’s rational, purportedly objective surface, Roszak finds a maelstrom of repressed sexual biases and gender stereotypes. Far from a purely objective view of the natural world, science—down to the very conception of the atom—is suffused with sexual politics. And the result, sadly, is a culture at risk from global warming, nuclear proliferation, toxic waste, genetic engineering, and more.

Congratulations to Theodore Roszak for exposing the psychological context of Big Science. I?learned much from his clear head and uncompromising heart - James Hillman, author of Re-Visioning Psychology and Force of Character

Roszak’s analysis of male influence on the conceptual structure, practice and applications of Western science combines all the elements we have come to expect from his writing:?historical depth, lucidity, accuracy and relevance. - Brian Goodwin, author of How the Leopard Changed His Spots.
