Dumit, Joseph


"Dumit's highly original oral history of how PET was developed and his cultural readings of how it is now being used are chock full of fascinating materials and insights. Among its many strengths, this intriguing book is itself highly interdisciplinary. It enables readers to see how powerful new scientific images constantly collapse into and condense old philosophical dilemmas."--Rayna Rapp, New York University "Ethnographic work on new medical technologies is rare and has an important contribution to make to debates about changing ideas of the body and about the role of medical knowledge in society.Picturing Personhoodprovides a timely, clear, and useful introduction to the problems and dilemmas of the production and use of PET scanning. It is undoubtedly a key contribution to our understanding of the social impacts of a technology that will become increasingly significant in many settings in the next decade."--Nikolas Rose, London School of EconomicsDumit, Joseph is the author of 'Picturing Personhood Brain Scans and Biomedical Identity', published 2003 under ISBN 9780691113982 and ISBN 069111398X.
