About this title


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.

From the Publisher:

Evan's book is written in an accessible style, and includes original illustrations by San Francisco artist Frank Pietronigro. This joint project in philosophy and art is an award winner from the San Francisco Art Commission. Critique of Patriarchal Reason opens the window of Western philosophy. Read it, and you will discover a whole new way of looking at your own life and at the world around you.
