The Second Sexismby the intrepid and rigorous David Benatar.
Jender, thanks so much. I am deeply sorry about the price, over which I had no control.
“Neurofeminism” may have had its first even public appearance on this blog, with our cfp. I was following on Cordelia Fine’s “neurosexism.” She is a contributor to the volume, for those who didn’t notice that.
I am deeply pleased to say that Cordelia will be discussing her Delusions of Gender at the APA 2013 central division meeting. She goes on to the UK for a debate with Simon Baron-Cohen.
Edouard, many thanks. Congrats should go to my co-editors who were wonderful.
I just heard about Cordelia, Edouard, and now owe you a letter…which I’ll send tomorrow.
