Prozac and the Post-human Politics of Cyborgs

Lewis, B. E. (2003). "Prozac and the Post-human Politics of Cyborgs." Journal of Medical Humanities 24(1/2): 49-63.

Prozac has featured in a number of discussions about posthumanism. Along with a range of other psychopharmcological substances, it is described by many as transforming the social role of medicine. Here, Lewis discusses Donna Haraway's cyborg theory in the context of this drug that alleges to make us better than well.
