SUMMARY

Simians, Cyborgs and Women is a powerful collection of ten essays written between 1978 and 1989. Although on the surface, simians, cyborgs and women may seem an odd threesome, Haraway describes their profound link as "creatures" which have had a great destabilizing place in Western evolutionary technology and biology. Throughout this book, Haraway analyzes accounts, narratives, and stories of the creation of nature, living organisms, and cyborgs. At once a social reality and a science fiction, the cyborg--a hybrid of organism and machine--represents transgressed boundaries and intense fusions of the nature/culture split. By providing an escape from rigid dualisms, the cyborg exists in a post-gender world, and as such holds immense possibilities for modern feminists. Haraway's recent book, Primate Visions , has been called "outstanding," "original," and "brilliant," by leading scholars in the field. Simians, Cyborgs, and Women tradition--establishingHaraway, Donna Jeanne is the author of 'Simians, Cyborgs, and Women: The Reinvention of Nature', published 1990 under ISBN 9780415903875 and ISBN 0415903874.
