Sentence of the day

The higher nonsense, from Professor Donna Haraway, chair of the History of Consciousness department at the University of California, Santa Cruz, in a paper titled “The Promises of Monsters: A Regenerative Politics for Inappropriate/d Others” (yes, “Inappropriate/d”):
Excruciatingly conscious of nature’s discursive constitution as “other” in the histories of colonialism, racism, sexism, and class domination of many kinds, we nonetheless find in this problematic, ethno-specific, long-lived, and mobile concept something we cannot do without, but can never “have.”
