Chasing Technoscience: Matrix for Materiality


Add your own review!

Overview

Although often absent from the considerations of philosophers, sociologists and anthropologists, the material dimension plays an important and even essential role in the practices of the sciences. This volume begins to redress this absence by bringing together four prominent figures who make technoscience, or science embodied in its technologies, a central theme of their work. Through lively personal interviews and substantive essays, the ideas of Andrew Pickering, Don Ihde, Donna Haraway and Bruno Latour are brought to bear on the question of materiality in technoscience. The work of these theorists is then compared and critiqued in essays by colleagues.

Reviews

... an original, quirky, and illuminating collection of material concerning the relatively new and exciting field of technoscience studies... [T]he editors' choice of multiple approaches to the work of four major figures is wholly suited to clarifying their unorthodox and consequently somewhat elusive philosophical positions. Robert Scharff
