What Makes People Weird? Menstrual Taboos Among Scientists in Western, Educated, Industrial, Rich and Democratic (Weird) Societies

Speaker(s)
Description

Western, educated, industrial, rich and democratic (WEIRD) countries produce scientists who share cultural assumptions which have nothing to do with science. Stemming from the days when universities were theological colleges, there are powerful taboos about menstruation and the moon which prevent scientists from being entirely rational when approaching the story of human biological and cultural evolution.
