    Enacting Silence: Residual Categories as a Challenge for Ethics, Information Systems, and Communication. [REVIEW]Susan Leigh Star & Geoffrey C. Bowker - 2007 - Ethics and Information Technology 9 (4):273-280.
    Residual categories are those which cannot be formally represented within a given classification system. We examine the forms that residuality takes within our information systems today, and explore some silences which form around those inhabiting particular residual categories. We argue that there is significant ethical and political work to be done in exploring residuality.

    Universality Biases: How Theories About Human Nature Succeed.Gail A. Hornstein & Susan Leigh Star - 1990 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 20 (4):421-436.
    University of Keele, England This article analyzes the strategies and means by which universalist claims about human nature become successful in science. Of specific interest are the conditions under which claims of this sort are taken to be inherently superior to those which are particularistic or context-specific (a hierarchy of values which we term "universality bias"). We trace the birth of universalists claims in neglected fields, their growth through methodological agreements and the use of invisible referents, and their roots in (...)
