Simians, Cyborgs, and Women: The Reinvention of Nature by scholar and author Donna Haraway is a collection of essays about nature and the strange creatures therein written between 1978 and 1989. Now it’s 2022, and nature continues to perplex us strange, increasingly tech-addled creatures. We’re stuck to our everyday technology, screens, consoles, and headsets, but in contrast to modern finger-wagging essays, Haraway makes a compelling argument in favor of our current form: boundary-and-science-defying cyborgs.

These essays are one big push against rigid, binary thinking—especially in response to race, gender, and science—and it still lands decades later.
