Summary

THE BRILLIANT AND HUGELY INFLUENTIAL BOOK BY THE WINNER OF THE 2017 ROYAL SOCIETY INSIGHT INVESTMENT SCIENCE BOOKS PRIZE

‘Fun, droll yet deeply serious.’
New Scientist
‘A brilliant feminist critic of the
neurosciences … Read her, enjoy and learn.’
Hilary Rose, THES
‘A witty and meticulously researched
exposé of the sloppy studies that pass for scientific
evidence in so many of today’s bestselling books
on sex differences.’
Carol Tavris, TLS

Gender inequalities are increasingly defended by citing hard-wired differences between the male and
female brain. That’s why, we’re told, there are so few
women in science, so few men in the laundry room –
different brains are just suited to different things.

With sparkling wit and humour, Cordelia Fine attacks
this ‘neurosexism’, revealing the mind’s remarkable
plasticity, the substantial influence of culture on identity,
and the malleability of what we consider to be
‘hardwired’ difference. 

This modern classic shows
the surprising extent to which boys and girls, men and
women are made – not born.

    Yoga falls into four categories: the first being the yoga of devotion is termed Bhakti yoga, the second being yoga of service is termed karma yoga, the third being yoga of wisdom is termed Jnana yoga, and the fourth being yoga of meditation is termed Raja yoga. There are, of course, other forms of yoga that are accessories to the four main categories. What we are concerned here is Raja yoga.
