This is an excellent edited collection that points to new lines of inquiry in the areas explored. The editors must congratulate themselves in pulling together a fine body of work. JRAI To consider anew the relation of science and humanities beyond the simplistic finger-pointing of "social constructivism" or the reductivism of STS, as this book does, is an important direction for continuing Deleuze's project. SubStance This remarkable work...creates a compelling radicalism from which to broach issues and problems that turn out to belong to no one discipline. Marilyn Strathern, Cambridge University Science studies has long been in need of some Deleuzian lines of flight from its predictable territories - now the wait is over...If the next century will be known as Deleuzian, as Foucault famously predicted, then the next century's science studies will proliferate and unfold from the rich materials collected here. Mike Fortun, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Science and technology studies, cultural anthropology and cultural studies deal with the complex relations between material, symbolic, technical and political practices.
In a Deleuzian approach these relations are seen as produced in heterogeneous assemblages, moving across distinctions such as the human and non-human or the material and ideal. This volume outlines a Deleuzian approach to analyzing science, culture and politics.
