The author of A Cyborg Manifesto (1984), Donna J. Haraway (1944) is a philosopher.

In A Cyborg Manifesto the concept of the cyborg is a rejection of rigid boundaries, notably those separating "human" from "animal" and "human" from "machine." She writes: "The cyborg does not dream of community on the model of the organic family, this time without the oedipal project. The cyborg would not recognize the Garden of Eden; it is not made of mud and cannot dream of returning to dust."

Dr. Haraway is a technofeminist.

She's born born September 6, 1944.

Has been occupied as a school teacher in the «History of Consciousness Department» and «Feminist Studies Department» at the University of California, Santa Cruz, United States.[1] Haraway, a prominent scholar in the field of science and technology studies, was described in the early 1990s as a "feminist, rather loosely a postmodernist".[2] She is the author of numerous books and essays that bring together questions of science and feminism, such as "A Cyborg Manifesto: Science, Technology, and Socialist-Feminism in the Late Twentieth Century" (1985) and "Situated Knowledges: The Science Question in Feminism and the Privilege of Partial Perspective" (1988).[3][4]
