The myth of Testosterone Rex is that men and women have evolved different natures.

It’s grounded in old science, which asserted that sex hormones influence men to be competitive and women caring.

But, science has moved on.

Professor of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Melbourne, Cordelia Fine outlines this in her new book Testosterone Rex.

It delivers compelling evidence gathered from evolutionary science, psychology, neuroscience and social history that the myth is extinct.

Cordelia will be speaking at Adelaide Writers’ Week and All About Women in Sydney.
