An explosive indictment of analytic philosophy and science. Arthur Evans exposes the patriarchal biases underlying modern "rationality." Evans shows how these biases have infected formal logic, higher mathematics, and the scientific method. He demonstrates the harmful impact they have had on women, gay people, artists, indigenous societies, and the natural environment. In place of these biases, he offers a new, liberating view of the role of reason in human life. Among the many thinkers discussed in the book is Ludwig Wittgenstein. A surprising connection is uncovered between Wittgenstein's theories of logic and language on one hand, and his conflicted attitude toward his homosexuality on the other.
