Hobart and William Smith Colleges will offer a feminist theory course next year that questions whether science can truly be “objective.”

“Philosophy 250: Feminism: Ethics and Knowledge” is a sophomore-level course taught by Karen Frost-Arnold, a philosophy professor who also teaches classes such as “Power, Privilege, and Knowledge” as well as “Introduction to Women’s Studies.”

“This course examines various feminist critiques of traditional approaches to ethics and to knowledge,” explains the course description, noting that the first half of the class will cover morality, while the latter half focuses on epistemology.

“Historically, how has science contributed to the subordination of women?” the course description asks. “Are social and political considerations relevant to science? Is it possible for science to be ‘objective?’”
