Carol Gilligan on the Psychological Differences between Men and Women

Carol Gilligan: A colleague said “if you write book called any Different Voice, she was linguist you only need one book, here is the voice that is described as the human voice and here is the Different Voice” and I said in the being of in a Different Voice, I empirically notice that this Different Voice was of what I heard more often in women, but I said it is not a women’s voice it’s a Different Voice and if you listen to it, you will hear in men too,” as I told you for example with the study of the college students and in a Different Voice in chapter 6 there are descriptions of how men at times of crisis in there lives often when there relationship fall apart, start to speak in a much more relational voice, because they realize that their blindness to those issues the relationship had let them into lot of loss and pain.

Why are so many objects in space shaped like discs?

It's one of the most consistent patterns in the unviverse. What causes it?

  • Spinning discs are everywhere – just look at our solar system, the rings of Saturn, and all the spiral galaxies in the universe.
  • Spinning discs are the result of two things: The force of gravity and a phenomenon in physics called the conservation of angular momentum.
  • Gravity brings matter together; the closer the matter gets, the more it accelerates – much like an ice skater who spins faster and faster the closer their arms get to their body. Then, this spinning cloud collapses due to up and down and diagonal collisions that cancel each other out until the only motion they have in common is the spin – and voila: A flat disc.
