Narrative Experiments

The Discursive Authority of Science and Technology

1989
Authors:

Gayle L. Ormiston and Raphael Sassower

Narrative Experiments

“Although this book’s purpose is to show that scientific knowledge is construed discursively like any other knowledge, its originality does not consist solely in this argument ... Instead, it comes from the authors’ use of literary analysis -- deconstruction, close reading, and etymological devices -- to understand the discourse of science. The result is nothing less than a brilliant series of refutations of some widely held beliefs.”

Stanley Aronowitz, CUNY Graduate Center
