Abstract

Grace Lee Boggs (MR, February 1990) attacks the practice of science as inherently Eurocentric, irretrievably linked to capitalism and imperialism, and necessarily estranging us from each other and from our planet. There is some truth in this; science did grow up in Europe, clearly linked to the development of capitalism and imperialism.
