The Haraway Reader Reviews
Donna Haraway is said to be one of the hardes to read. I don't agree. She is not easy to read, but her writing is so full of wit, info and wisdom :) I totally love the way she play with words in serious writings. Life is too short to NOT full around :) I love her writing style, the way she takes up issues in moder biology and biotech, the angles and positions she stands and the unique perspectives she illuminate from her point of view. I know she is hard to imitate. Nonetheless, I"d love to be an independent thinker just like her. Actually, I wanna be better:) We'll see how far I can go from her.
I might as well just go ahead and rate it, even though I think I will have to read it three times through before I understand it well enough to give you a synopsis :) Dense as dense, but so, so brilliant.
These seminal essays by Donna Haraway are the "easiest" to understand (though Haraway is never really precise) as she mentions in the book. These thought provoking and informative essays explore feminist techno-science studies that bring up questions we have not yet answered. I'm still thinking these over, and I know I will have to revisit this book again for meaning, and depth.
