Reflection #6

  • Why did DNA become ideologically coded as “the book of life”?

  • According to Hubbard, what role did gender play in the origin story of genetics?


Reductionism:

  • “nature becomes biology, biology becomes genetics, and the whole is instrumentalized in particular forms (Haraway, 134).

    Fetishism:

  • “things are mistakenly perceived as the generators of value….genes displace not only organisms but people and nonhumans …as generators of liveliness” (Haraway, 135).
