Feminist philosopher Elizabeth A. Lloyd has contributed to the so-called science wars a lengthy book chapter attacking scientist-authors who have recently defended natural science from various indictments (e.g., sexism, racism, masculinism, militarism, imperialism) lodged against it in the field of “science studies”. Her main charge is that the named scientists, not those against whose charges they defend science, are the real enemies of objectivity. It is argued that her methods are old and well-known devices of propaganda; her conclusions are therefore nugatory.

Keywords:   feminism, objectivity, ecofeminism, androcentrism, higher superstition, Gross, Levitt, Holton, prejudice
