Editorial Reviews

Booknews
From a week-long seminar in October 1993 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, 11 essays explore such questions as the Citadel problem of how science gains authority to direct truth practices; the boundaries between humans and machines; and the Cyborg problem of how science, technology, and medicine contribute to the fashioning of everyday lives and selves. They report from a prenatal sonogram program, an inner-city AIDS clinic, a molecular biotechnology lab, a center for brain imaging technology, and other corners of the industrial wilds. Distributed in the US by University of Washington Press. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
