Given that, every time we discuss Haraway, invariably the question of her writing style comes up, I wanted to call attention to the way in which Haraway begins her Book..

[…] information must not be a commodity. In the vulnerabilities and potencies of their altered bodies, these technologically savvy women understand the bond of literacy and wealth that structures the chances of life and death in their world… where literacy is about the joining of informatics, biologics, and economics—about the kinship of the chip, gene, seed, bomb, lineage, ecosystem, and database.
[…] in the European past, the Catholic Church controlled literacy, except for the potent exceptions of heretics, infidels, and Jews, who can claim the status of peoples of the book with an originary authority that strikes at the heart of the Church’s monopoly […] tunneling under the wreckage of a violent history […] to these oppositional traditions of reading and writing, with their generative accounts of what can count as human, as knowledge, as history, as insider and outsider.
Beginning in the mythic times called the Scientific Revolution
[…] I learned early that the imaginary and the real figure each other in concrete fact, and so I take the actual and the figural seriously as constitutive of lived material-semiotic worlds.
My modest witness cannot ever be simply oppositional. Rather s/he is suspicious, implicated, knowing, ignorant, worried, and hopeful. Inside the net of stories, agencies, and instruments that constitute technoscience, s/he is committed to learning how to avoid both the narratives and the realities of the Net that threaten her world at the end of the Second Christian Millennium. S/he is seeking to learn and practice the mixed literacies and differential consciousness that are more faithful to the way the world, including the world of technoscience, actually works.
