I don't know that I have very much to say about Pynchon. The first half of the book seems to me to be laying the groundwork for the second, so at this halfway point, I don't have a lot of thoughts about gender and science. Maybe a little in the depiction of the engineer, but mostly I'm thinking about communism and playwrights right now. Stepan doesn't help me much here. I suppose I could try to force some of the insights related on these pages into a scientific framework, but I would be more interested in discussing them in the framework of the book itself. It seems to follow its own logic, which as of now, does not speak directly to gender/science relations.
