"Posthumanism is a coming-of-age book for studies of science, technology, and culture. It brings together the most crucial considerations of current debates about the status of the posthuman and, in so doing, beautifully weaves together their political history and current relevance when thinking through this complex terrain."5/5(1).

This is an excellent and up-to-date review of the many forms of critical and cultural posthumanism. It touches tangentially on other forms of posthumanism such as transhumanism, bioconservatism, and science fiction, but the main focus Posthumanism book on the critical and cultural posthumanism developed from within the by: What Is Posthumanism.

is an original, thoroughly argued, fundamental redefinition and refocusing of posthumanism. Firmly distinguishing posthumanism from discourses of the ‘posthuman’ or ‘transhumanism,’ Posthumanism book book will be at the center of discussion for a long time to come.

Ferrando's book has its biggest merit in bringing together a very thoughtful historical analysis of the intellectual roots of posthumanism and at the same time using these considerations within the performance of posthuman theory as nondualist and.

"Posthumanism: A Guide for the Perplexed is a wide-ranging, informative and engagingly written book on the emergent field of posthuman studies, which challenges traditional humanities scholarship by addressing the processes of digitalization, medicalization, and globalization, as well as contemporary environmental and political challenges like climate change, migration, biopolitics 4/5(1).

Posthumanities situates itself at a crossroads: at the intersection of “the humanities” in its current academic configuration and the challenges it faces from “posthumanism” to move beyond its standard parameters and practices.

Rather than simply reproducing established forms and methods of disciplinary knowledge, posthumanists confront how changes in society and culture require that.

Posthumanism is a philosophical perspective of how change is enacted in the world. As a conceptualization and historicization of both agency and the “human,” it is different from those conceived through humanism. Whereas a humanist perspective frequently assumes the human is autonomous, conscious, intentional, and exceptional in acts of change, a posthumanist perspective assumes.

Throughout the book, Braidotti gives a really concise summary of what exactly posthumanism is, as well as an explanation of where she is coming from critically (this turns out. He has curated a number of exhibitions on Indian and Japanese Art and has written extensively on philosophy, art history, culture studies, postcolonialism and posthumanism.

Book "Philosophical Posthumanism and Its Others" (English translation) Francesca Ferrando Italian edition "Il Postumanesimo Filosofico e le Sue Alterità" (), Edizioni Ets, : Francesca Ferrando.

This book explores ways in which posthumanist and new materialist thinking can be put to work in order to reimagine higher education pedagogy, practice and research. The contributors illuminate how we can move the thinking and doing of higher education out of individualism and colonialism.

If you've been reading Wolfe, you've already read this. Comprising articles on Bjork and psychoanalytic theory, systems theory, critical animal theory, Wallace Stevens, and Emerson, What is Posthumanism never quite gelled into a book for me. Instead of this collection, I would have welcomed an entire, brief book collecting the critical animal theory material Wolfe has published since Animal /5.

What does it mean to think beyond humanism. Is it possible to craft a mode of philosophy, ethics, and interpretation that rejects the classic humanist divisions of self and other, mind and body, society and nature, human and animal, organic and technological.

Can a new kind of humanities-posthumanities-respond to the redefinition of humanity's place in the world by both the technological and 4/5(3).

It brings together the most crucial considerations of current debates about the status of the posthuman and, in so doing, beautifully weaves together their political history and current relevance when thinking through this complex terrain.".

In my opening comments, I indicated that I did not intend this book as either an endorsement of humanism or an anti or posthumanism. What do I mean by this claim. Peter Sloterdijk says of humanism that ‘as a word and as a movement [it] always has a goal, a purpose, a rationale: it is the commitment to save men from barbarism’.

24 A Critique of Posthumanism. In the last three chapters, I presented a brief description of posthumanism, its premises and how they have been put to work. I will now proceed to the charges laid against posthumanism. In Chap I will reconstruct the implicit premises of posthumanism and the contradictions they entail.

What is posthumanism and why does it matter. This book offers an introduction to the ways in which humanism's belief in the natural supremacy of the Family of Man has been called into question at different moments and from different theoretical positions. What is the relationship between posthumanism and technology?/5.

Unlike the previous reviewers, I found Cary Wolfe's recent book What is Posthumanism? to be quite rewarding, if a bit inconsistent at times. What is Posthumanism?

is divided into two parts. The first, Theories, Disciplines, Ethics, is a manifesto for the role of critical animal studies/posthumanism in the by:   Written by one of the earliest voices in posthumanism as a discourse, this book is not only a (very) good read, it is a 'must' for everyone who wants to learn more about a decidedly 'critical-theoretical' analysis of the posthuman condition that clearly distinguishes itself from more techno-determined and facile readings of humanity's past, present and possible future/5.Finally the book explores posthumanism’s roots in disability studies, animal studies and bioethics to underscore the constructed nature of ‘normalcy’ in bodies, and the singularity of species and life itself.

As this book powerfully demonstrates, posthumanism marks a radical reassessment of the human as constituted by symbiosis.
