Overview

Modest_Witness@Second_Millenium.FemaleMan_Meets_OncoMouse explores the roles of stories, figures, dreams, theories, facts, delusions, advertising, institutions, economic arrangements, publishing practices, scientific advances, and politics in twentieth-century technoscience.

The book's title is an e-mail address. With it, Haraway locates herself and her readers in a sprawling net of associations more far-flung than the Internet. The address is not a cozy home. There is no innocent place to stand in the world where the book's author figure, FemaleMan, encounters DuPont's controversial laboratory rodent, OncoMouse.

Harraway and Randolph position their arguments in constant transitions. Science and technological discourse is socially constructed through time and space. However, this construction is based on the female/male biological diference that persist in post modern times. In addition, oncomouse as a laboratory animal remaind us of the origins of ideology: acceptance of sacrifice in the name of the mayority (democracy).
