Product Description

Review

"... 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

DI: Those of us who have read your books, from Laboratory Life through Artemis, Pasteur, and up recently through Pandora's Hope, have noted first of all that you move somewhat from an earlier, much more descriptivist position to now considering normative factors-morality and ethics. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
Chasing Technoscience is an excellent volume for anyone interested in the intellectual provocations of Bruno Latour, Donna Haraway, Andrew Pickering,and Don Ihde. The interviews and original pieces found in the first half of the book are immensely informative and finely crafted.
The comparative pieces comprising the second half of the text are quite illuminating in their depth and scope. Because the volume is carefully organized, it is conducive to critically broadening one's perspective on how phenomenology, actor-network-theory, and the cultural studies of science relate to one another. Ultimately, this unique volume will be remembered for initiating of a long overdue and valuable dialogue between Continental philosophy and Science and Technology Studies.
