Crystals, Fabrics and Fields by Donna Jeanne Haraway

Book Description

The title Crystals, Fabrics, and Fields elucidates the three central metaphors that author Donna Haraway uses to track the paradigm shift in developmental biology that occurred from the late 1890s to the mid-1950s. This was a time of fruitful discovery and unparalleled crisis in the field of biology in which Haraway pinpoints a paradigm shift that fits the construct outlined by Thomas S. Kuhn in his well-known book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions.

Author Biography - Donna Jeanne Haraway

Donna Haraway is perhaps our most advanced scientific storyteller. She locates the myths, metaphors, and tropes that underlie a technologically companionable physical world. Without abandoning scientific method in fact, by embracing it in its fullest applicability she exposes and also celebrates our scientific narratives as our clan story. In the process she 'outs' our most fundamental distinctions and unexamined paradoxes: nature/culture, wild/domesticated, molecular/organic, animal/human, body/gender, et al. Crystals, Fabrics, and Fields is the first chapter of Haraway's epic tale of Western science. When she names it 'metaphors that shape embryos, ' it should be clear that embryos also shape her metaphors, for she brilliantly illuminates the origin and dependence of each in each other. Donna Haraway is a professor in the History of Consciousness Department, University of California, Santa Cruz."
