Metaphors of Twentieth-century BiologyBook - 1995
In these three essays, feminist historian and philosopher of science Evelyn Fox Keller explores the interplay of machines and metaphors in modern scientific inquiry. She looks at the discourse of the contemporary life sciences, the metaphors which allow scientific work to proceed. As powerfully as the physical technology of modern science, these metaphors define the paths along which research can proceed.
