Abstract or Description

The Companion Species Manifesto: Dogs, People, and Significant Otherness (hereafter CSM) is a short book and an embellishment of an argument that also appeared in 2003 in an article in Ihde and Selinger’s Chasing Technoscience and in the Haraway Reader also published in 2003 (Haraway, 2003a, 2003b; see also Haraway 2003c, 2003d). It develops certain ideas that are a constant feature of Haraway’s work, which pays serious attention to ‘entities that are neither nature nor culture’
(Markussen et al., 2003: 57), and makes use of the format that was so influential when the ‘Cyborg Manifesto’ was published in 1985 (Haraway, 1991).
