From the late 1980s to the late 1990s there was concentrated activity around feminist philosophy of science and the question: could there be a feminist science? (Richardson 2008). Early feminist approaches to science were concerned with certain assumptions within scientific methodology itself. During that period, there were exhortations for a replacement of androcentric values with feminist values (Harding 1991) and a replacing of the Kuhnian values for interpreting underdetermined knowledge with feminist ‘virtues.’ In contrast to Kuhn’s values, the virtues as set forward by Longino were:
complexity of relationship
applicability to current human needs
diffusion of power (Longino 1992: 336–337)
