Subject: Re: cyborg *


I suppose the point at which i have most questions about your post is this
business of the "ethically sound." I think one of the points on which a
number of our references here might be brought together identifies the
ethical as always something other than "sound." Haraway's insistence that
the cyborg isn't innocent has at least something in common with, for
example, Derrida's claims that ethics can never be reduced to
"technology" without ceasing to be ethics. 

There are lots of ways of coming at the quasi-dualism that's in play
here. It's harder to know which is useful without knowing how
"soundness" plays though.
