 Donna Haraway - Professor of Feminist Theory and Technoscience - Biography
Haraway likens "cyborg" to the political identity of "women of color," which "marks out a self-consciously constructed space that cannot affirm the capacity to act on the basis of natural identification, but only on the basis of conscious coalition, of affinity, of political kinship" (ibid).
Haraway uses the metaphor of the cyborg to discuss the relationships of science, technology, and "socialist-feminism." She holds that hi-tech culture challenges and breaks down the old dualisms of Western thinking like the mind/body split, Self/Other, male/female, reality/appearance, and truth/illusion.
Because she deals explicitly with the theory of the cyborg — the being who is part human and part machine — she has been particularly influential on cyberpunk writers.

So for me the sci-fi cyborg, the meat/metal hybrid, is already another of those symbols, somewhat in the way that Dr. Satan’s robots had their origin, as symbols, in a Czech satirist’s view of alienated labor.
