Delusions of Gender: The Real Science Behind Sex Differences (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 days.



'Fun, droll yet deeply serious.'

New Scientist

'A brilliant feminist critic of the

neurosciences ... Read her, enjoy and learn.'

Hilary Rose, THES

'A witty and meticulously researched

expose of the sloppy studies that pass for scientific

evidence in so many of today's bestselling books

on sex differences.'

Carol Tavris, TLS

Gender inequalities are increasingly defended by citing hard-wired differences between the male and

female brain. That's why, we're told, there are so few

women in science, so few men in the laundry room -

different brains are just suited to different things.

With sparkling wit and humour, Cordelia Fine attacks

this 'neurosexism', revealing the mind's remarkable

plasticity, the substantial influence of culture on identity,

and the malleability of what we consider to be

'hardwired' difference.

This modern classic shows

the surprising extent to which boys and girls, men and

women are made - not born.

Cordelia Fine is a Professor of the History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Melbourne. She is the author of much-acclaimed A Mind of Its Own (Icon, 2006) and Testosterone Rex (Icon, 2017).
