Alchemy, Domination, and Gender William R. Newman
Evelyn Fox Keller and Carolyn Merchant claimed that the alchemical worldview was an attractive alternative to the repressive, patriarchal mechanical philosophy, which succeeded it. This essay shows that alchemy was hardly the rose-tinted framework that feminists, following Jung and Eliade, believed it to be, and actually contained some of the violent imagery that they decried in later science.
