- The Shaping of Modern Knowledge (Infrastructures)
- By: Clifford Siskin
- Narrated by: Tim Andres Pabon
- Length: 9 hrs and 21 mins
A system can describe what we see (the solar system), operate a computer (Windows 10), or be made on a page (the 14 engineered lines of a sonnet). In this book, Clifford Siskin shows that system is best understood as a genre - a form that works physically in the world to mediate our efforts to understand it. Indeed, many Enlightenment authors published works they called "system" to compete with the essay and the treatise.
