About this product
- DescriptionAlthough 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. Chasing Techscience: Matrix for Materiality begins to redress this absence by bringing together four prominent figures who make techscience, or science embodied in its techlogies, a central theme of their work. Through lively personal interviews and substantive essays, the ideas of Andrew Pickering, Don Ihde, Donna Haraway, and Bru Latour are brought to bear on the question of materiality in techscience. The work of these theorists is then compared and critiqued in essays by colleagues. Chasing Techscience is a ground-breaking, state-of-the-art look at current developments in techscience.
