Ruth Hubbard Quotes

4 Ruth Hubbard quotes:

"The mythology of science asserts that with many different scientists all asking their own questions and evaluating the answers independently, whatever personal bias creeps into their individual answers is cancelled out when the large picture is put together. This might conceivably be so if scientists were women and men from all sorts of different cultural and social backgrounds who came to science with very different ideologies and interests. But since, in fact, they have been predominantly university-trained white males from privileged social backgrounds, the bias has been narrow and the product often reveals more about the investigator than about the subject being researched."

"Even if you become fluent in a second language, you don't understand it the same as the language you grew up with and that your mother spoke to you in."

"Without words to objectify and categorize our sensations and place them in relation to one another, we cannot evolve a tradition of what is real in the world."
