Irina Aristarkhova theorizes such hospitality with the aptitude to head past tolerance in knowing self/other family members. construction on and severely comparing quite a lot of ancient and modern scholarship, she applies this theoretical framework to the technological know-how, expertise, and paintings of ectogenesis (artificial womb, neonatal incubators, and different sorts of iteration outdoor of the maternal physique) and proves the query “Can the computing device nurse?” is important while coming near near and realizing the useful capacities and screw ups of incubating applied sciences, equivalent to synthetic placenta. Aristarkhova concludes with the technological know-how and artwork of male being pregnant, positioning the as a question of the hospitable guy and newly outlined fatherhood and its problem to the belief of masculinity as not able to welcome the other.
