Ann Hartman, “Epistemologies and Paradigms,” 1983
In this 1983 essay, delivered as a speech at the 65th SSW Anniversary, Dean Ann Hartman, M.S.S. 1954, examined assumptions and implications with regard to world view and epistemologies. She offered the claim by Carol Gilligan in her book, In A Different Voice that women have a different way of thinking than men and asked what the implications are of that insight.
We have been, perhaps, less aware of the extent to which we continue to lean upon and utilize psychological perspectives that express a predominantly male world view.
