PostHumanities #25: Humanesis: Sound and Technological Posthumanism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Humanesis critically examines central strains of posthumanism, searching out biases in the ways that human–technology coupling is explained and interrogating three approaches taken by posthumanist discourse: scientific, humanist, and organismic. David Cecchetto’s investigations reveal how each perspective continues to hold on to elements of the humanist tradition that it is ostensibly mobilized against.

About the Author

David Cecchetto is assistant professor of new media (history and criticism) at OCAD University, Toronto. He coedited the book Collision: Interarts Practice and Research. He is also a practicing multimedia artist.
