Difference in rationalization; men vs women

I regularly peruse philosophy and became an instant fan of the mind of Carol Gilligan.

In her short 6 minute video "Carol Gilligan on Women and Moral Development" linked below she describes in enlightening terms the difference between the genders relative to logic.

This is the topic of this discussion. We will tackle this important and significant idea while others watch tackles.

Watch the video and you may very agree the sense of women is in many ways superior, more organic and related to others and by that I say more meta-physical then the ridgid confines of logic. Do you think that is intuition you have?

Or has Carol Gillgan identified something that explains this difference in core rationality and how we all too often disagree?

I hope we can draw this out and I look forward to seeing you there, put your thinking caps on and no hitting the facilitator.

    Ok it looks like we have a good group for tomorrow. If at the last minute you cannot make the meetup please go ahead and cancel but I hope you don't. This is the first of whatt I hope to be different, interesting and perhaps controversial subjects we will be discussing in future DC Philosophy Cafe meets.

    For your consideration you may want to look at this analysis of Carol Gilligan's theories partially expressed in her video

    There is a difference between morality dispositions between man and woman and value system according to Gilligan, than rationality or logical thinking--I am not sure Gilligan has addressed this aspect from what I Googled.

    Thanks Timothy hope to catch you on the next one. I expect to be having some of these during the week in the evening and intend to start charging a nominal fee. My intent is to have more controversial subjects to discuss that challenge conventional wisdom.
