the cyborg metaphor has been deployed tochallenge disembodied, dualistic, masculinist and teleological bodies of knowledge. Ithas infused science and technology studies with feminist epistemological strategies
This is an important quote because yes, the cyborg metaphor is prominent in the discussion of the disembodied, dualistic, patriarchal understandings, and with the science and technology ways of rational thinking, it entangles itself with femist ways of theorizing knowledge - justified belief from opinion. But I don't know much about this, probably should ask professor Switzer in my Eco-philosophy class.
