They are not surrogates for theory, she says; they are not here just to think with. Neither are they just an alibi for other themes; specjes are fleshly material-semiotic presences in the body of technoscience.

They are here to live with. Partners in the crime of human evolution, they are in the garden from the get-go, wily as Coyote.

Donma pamphlet is Haraway’s answer to her own “Cyborg Manifesto”, where the slogan for living on the edge of global war has to be not just “cyborgs for earthly survival”, but also, in a more doggish idiom, “shut up and train”. Read more Read less. Customers who bought this item also bought.

More intriguing and more encompassing but in the same line as her Cyborg work, this short text is an interesting manufesto exercise for thinking through the human relationship with dogs–and other companiom as well, as the title suggests. As a means of opening up the parameters for what constitutes ‘Companion Species’, Haraway thinks through our relationship with our dogs but insists on incorporating other species.

It is a fun experiment that makes evident Haraway’s true love for dogs, and her apecies dog especially. It is a bit self-indulgent and a little messy, but I like the messiness of it if not the former part. It is nevertheless an interesting read. A book filled with fascinating insights on the relationships between humans and animals that questions how much of our understanding of being “human” is dependent of our four legged friends.

The Companion Species Manifesto

Haraway not only raises some thought provoking and well placed points on the boundaries between people and animals, but also writes in a clear and often amusing way. A great price for an important treatise. Very portable – no electricity needed! I can see a couple of reasons to read this book: Harraway introduces several ideas about the ways humans and dogs interact, while including the usual philosophical and historical background to help situate this relationship in the larger world.


It is thw fun little pamphlet. I read it in short bursts on the bus or while waiting for a friend to turn up to a restaurant.

The book fits easily in a back pocket or purse so you can take it along anywhere. If you are a big fan of Haraway’s feminist work, you might be a little disappointed by this book. I was hoping to see her invoke a lot more of the ideas that she introduces in “Cyborg Manifesto,” but I understand now that she chose not to subordinate this topic to her earlier theory in order to do justice to this work as an end in itself.
