Of Two Minds Review -- Two Minds

Joyce on being of two minds:
"In 1982 I bought a microcomputer, a decision that proceeded from my interests and identity as a writer-teacher. Immediately, as in the most naive visions of pulp science fiction--and despite my claims that this perspectivalizing machine was only a tool, a way of knowing--the computer began to change me. Possessed of two minds, my own and its augmented silicon, I began the slow process of learning to see this not so newly doubled self as one; to see, as Carolyn Guyer has put it, that 'dualities must be in tensional opposition to each other in order for the central paradox of existence to work'" (1.)
