  To view the world from a male perspective. Eichler (1988) outlines six types of androcentricity: male frame of reference — locating men as agents and women as objects; female invisibility; maintaining male over female interests; misogyny; and defending male dominance — and traces five manifestations of androcentricity in the research process. (See masculinism.) (GP)
