The edifice of feminist theory stands on the myth of patriarchal oppression. In dispensing with this myth, Stephen Jarosek shows that feminism is a bankrupt ideology that cannot be substantiated. He... More > applies principles from semiotics and systems theory, in the context of recent developments in the cognitive sciences, to show that women never were the helpless victims that feminists portray them as, to be moulded like putty in the hands of an all-controlling and unaccountable patriarchy. In the context of an emerging scientific paradigm, the author demonstrates that feminist narratives are not impartial descriptions of reality as it is but solipsistic projections of reality as feminists rationalize it. Their projections reveal more about feminists and their motivations than about the true nature of reality. Stephen Jarosek's compelling synthesis suggests that The Matriarchy is The Patriarchy's equal in all that is good and bad in culture, and this can only empower women in ways that feminism never could.< Less

Apprendere L'Intelligenza By Gian Pegoretti

Argomento centrale del libro è il confronto tra il lavoro di Reuven Feuerstein, ossia la Modificabilità Cognitiva Strutturale e l'Esperienza di apprendimento Mediato, con gli studi... More > neuroscientifici. Tramite tale confronto vengono valutati i limiti e la portata delle teorie di Feuerstein, rielaborandole in coerenza con le ricerche sul cervello. Inoltre sono messi in discussione i significati di apprendimento e cognizione, soprattutto in relazione alla possibilità di modificare l'intelligenza. Il testo prosegue con una riflessione sullo statuto epistemologico delle neuroscienze, volta a sciogliere le dicotomie natura/cultura nell'apprendimento. Il tema che àncora l'apprendimento alla biologia è la plasticità neurale, ossia l'insieme dei processi che sono alla base della mutevolezza e della flessibilità cerebrale, e che permettono la cognizione. Plasticità quindi come base della mente, che, pur presentando dei vincoli di tipo generico, rimane aperta all'esperienza.< Less
