Scientific Interest: Introduction to Isabelle Stengers, "Another Look: Relearning to Laugh"

Hypatia 15 (4):38-40 (2000)

This introduction highlights the place of "interest" in Isabelle Stengers's essay "Another Look: Relearning to Laugh" and considers its importance for feminist analyses of the sciences. Claiming that the positive affects have been underemployed in feminist philosophy of science, it is argued that Stengers's essay shows how criticism in the sciences can be re-animated through interest, excitement, and laughter.
