520    The answers to scientific questions depend on who's asking,
       because the questions asked and the answers sought reflect
       the cultural values and orientations of the questioner. 
       These values and orientations are most often those of 
       Western science. In Who's Asking?, Douglas Medin and Megan
       Bang argue that despite the widely held view that science 
       is objective, value-neutral, and acultural, scientists do 
       not shed their cultures at the laboratory or classroom 
       door; their practices reflect their values, belief systems,
       and worldviews. Medin and Bang argue further that 
       scientist diversity -- the participation of researchers 
       and educators with different cultural orientations -- 
       provides new perspectives and leads to more effective 
       science and better science education. Medin and Bang 
       compare Native American and European American orientations
       toward the natural world and apply these findings to 
       science education. The European American model, they find,
       sees humans as separated from nature; the Native American 
       model sees humans as part of a natural ecosystem. Medin 
       and Bang then report on the development of ecologically 
       oriented and community-based science education programs on
       the Menominee reservation in Wisconsin and at the American
       Indian Center of Chicago. Medin and Bang's novel argument 
       for scientist diversity also has important implications 
       for questions of minority underrepresentation in science
