Beschreibung

Through the prism of gender, this text explores the contrasting cultures and practice of mathematics and science and asks how they impacted on women. Claire Jones assesses nineteenth-century ideas about women's intellect, femininity and masculinity, and assesses how these attitudes shaped women's experiences as students and practitioners.

Klappentext

Through the prism of gender, this volume explores the contrasting cultures and material and social practices of mathematics and science in the decades surrounding 1900. It is demonstrated that gender, far from being a peripheral issue, is central to understanding the development of both pure and practical disciplines at this time.
