Critiques of Knowing explores what happens to science and computing when we think of them as texts. Lynette Hunter elegantly weaves together vast areas of thought: rhetoric, politics, AI, computing, feminism, science studies, aesthetics and epistemology.

Critiques of Knowing shows us that what we need is a radical shake-up of approaches to the arts if the critiques of science and computing are to come to any fruition.


'This is a dazzling book; in scope, in depth, in the originality of its approach and in the crisp confidence of its style. Its place in the study of particular disciplines is clear, but in the broader picture, it is difficult to think of anyone engaged in intellectual work at the end of the twentieth century who would not be the better for reading it.' - Convergence: The Journal of Research into New Media Technologies

'a much needed lexicon for scholars to draw upon.' - C.Jan Swearingen, Texas A & M University
