    About Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? “Twelve times a week,” answered Uta Hagen when asked how often she’d like to play Martha in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?In the same way, audiences and critics alike could not get enough of Edward Albee’s masterful play. Griet Vandermassen the author of Who’s Afraid of Charles Darwin?: Debating Feminism and Evolutionary Theory seeks to draw feminists attention towards science as a new source of information to help understand women’s roles and to reinforce women’s rights to equality. She outlines her intentions and her reasons for the book and follows it.

    The essays in "Men Doing Feminism" reveal that there is justification for both views, the skeptical and the enthusiastic, because feminist men are as diverse as feminist women. Many of the eighteen contributors to this book--women, men, blacks, whites, gays, straights, transsexuals--use personal narrative to show ways that men's lives can shape. A book that would spark much discussion in evolutionary psychology and women's studies coursesSex Roles: A Journal of Research This very readable book should pave the way for a more informed debate and some degree of reconciliation between feminists and evolutionary biologistsBiologistAuthor: Griet Vandermassen.

      Why should feminism and the biological sciences be at odds? And what might be gained from a reconciliation? In Who's Afraid of Charles Darwin? Vandermassen shows that, rather than continuing this enmity, feminism and the biological sciences—and in particular evolutionary psychology—have the need and the potential to become powerful : Griet Vandermassen. The philosophies of French thinkers Derrida, Lyotard, and Foucault form the basis for postmodern thought and are seemingly at odds with the Christian faith. However, James K. A. Smith claims that their ideas have been misinterpreted and actually have a deep affinity with central Christian.
