Papers Expanding on
the Themes and Issues of
By Chris Hables Gray
These papers were written during my research for Cyborg Citizen. They often contain details and analysis not in the book. Sometimes they put forward ideas I no longer ascribe to, and they are often written in academic language that is certainly not everyone's cup of tea. They are also, taken as a whole and with the book, somewhat redundant. They are directly linked to the parts of the Cyborg Citizen chapter discussions where they are most relevant. Those listed, but not linked, are on my "to do" list. In several instances the footnotes did not port over. I plan to rectify this problem soon. I hope some people will find them useful. -- CHG
