Article
In the joint keynote address that bioanthropologist Barbara Smuts and I did in 2004 for the Society for Literature and Science meetings, she and I were companion species with each other, as well as with other critters, as we explored our entangled histories dating to her helping me in the mid-1980s with Primate Visions, and extending through our pr...
Chapter
This chapter is an effort to build an ironic political myth faithful to feminism, socialism, and materialism. Perhaps more faithful as blasphemy is faithful, than as reverent worship and identification. Blasphemy has always seemed to require taking things very seriously.

Article
This paper was first published in Socialist Review, no. 80, 1985.
