Cyborg Theology

Original Synopsis

"Cyborg Theology has a total of 272 pages which are papers from writer 'Scott A. Midson'. The concept of the cyborg, or cybernetic organism, has led to notably creative explorations of the ambiguous relationship between human beings and technology. In particular, Donna Haraway argued in her famous 1991 ‘Cyborg Manifesto’ that people, since they are so often now detached and separated from nature, have themselves evolved into cyborgs. This striking idea has had considerable influence within critical theory, cultural studies and even science fiction (where it has surfaced, for example, in the Terminator films and in the Borg of the Star Trek franchise). But it is a notion that has had much less currency in theology. In his innovative new book, Scott Midson boldly argues that the deeper nuances of Haraway’s and the cyborg idea can similarly rejuvenate theology, mythology and anthropology. Challenging the damaging anthropocentrism directed towards nature and the non-human in our society, the author reveals – through an imaginative reading of the myth of Eden – how it is now possible for humanity to be at one with the natural world even as it vigorously pursues novel, ‘post-human’, technologies. 2017-10-30 time of publication of the book, [-I.B.Tauris-]"

Children’s Literature and the Posthuman

Original Synopsis

"Children’s Literature and the Posthuman has a total of 284 pages which are papers from writer 'Zoe Jaques'. An investigation of identity formation in children's literature, this book brings together children’s literature and recent critical concerns with posthuman identity to argue that children’s fiction offers sophisticated interventions into debates about what it means to be human, and in particular about humanity’s relationship to animals and the natural world. In complicating questions of human identity, ecology, gender, and technology, Jaques engages with a multifaceted posthumanism to understand how philosophy can emerge from children's fantasy, disclosing how such fantasy can build upon earlier traditions to represent complex issues of humanness to younger audiences. Interrogating the place of the human through the non-human (whether animal or mechanical) leads this book to have interpretations that radically depart from the critical tradition, which, in its concerns with the socialization and representation of the child, has ignored larger epistemologies of humanness. The book considers canonical texts of children's literature alongside recent bestsellers and films, locating texts such as Gulliver’s Travels (1726), Pinocchio (1883) and the Alice books (1865, 1871) as important works in the evolution of posthuman ideas. This study provides radical new readings of children’s literature and demonstrates that the genre offers sophisticated interventions into the nature, boundaries and dominion of humanity. 2015-02-11 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

Posthumanism

Original Synopsis

"Posthumanism has a total of 128 pages which are papers from writer 'Alan Smart, Josephine Smart'. Designed to explain posthumanism to those outside of academia, this brief and accessible book makes an original argument about anthropology's legacy as a study of "more than human." Smart and Smart return to the holism of classic ethnographies where cattle, pigs, yams, and sorcerers were central to the lives that were narrated by anthropologists, but they extend the discussion to include contemporary issues like microbiomes, the Anthropocene, and nano-machines, which take holism beyond locally bounded spaces. They outline what a holism without boundaries could look like, and what anthropology could offer to the knowledge of more-than-human nature in the past, present, and future. 2017-04-26 time of publication of the book, [-University of Toronto Press-]"

Ayn Rand and the Posthuman

Original Synopsis

"Ayn Rand and the Posthuman has a total of 197 pages which are papers from writer 'Ben Murnane'. Ayn Rand and the Posthuman is a study of the American novelist’s relationship with twenty-first-century ideas about technology. Rand wrote science fiction that has inspired Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, politicians, and economists. Ben Murnane demonstrates Rand’s connection to, and impact on, those with a “posthuman” vision, in which human and machine merge. The text examines the philosophical intersections between Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism and posthumanism, and Rand’s influence on transhumanism, a major branch of posthumanist thought. The book further investigates Rand’s presence and portrayal in various examples of posthumanist science fiction, including Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda, popular videogame BioShock, and Zoltan Istvan’s novel The Transhumanist Wager. Considering Rand’s influence from a cultural, political, technological, and economic perspective, this study throws light on an under-documented but highly significant aspect of Rand’s legacy. 2018-05-17 time of publication of the book, [-Springer-]"

Superintelligence

Original Synopsis

"Superintelligence has a total of 272 pages which are papers from writer 'Nick Bostrom'. The human brain has some capabilities that the brains of other animals lack. It is to these distinctive capabilities that our species owes its dominant position. Other animals have stronger muscles or sharper claws, but we have cleverer brains. If machine brains one day come to surpass human brains in general intelligence, then this new superintelligence could become very powerful. As the fate of the gorillas now depends more on us humans than on the gorillas themselves, so the fate of our species then would come to depend on the actions of the machine superintelligence. But we have one advantage: we get to make the first move. Will it be possible to construct a seed AI or otherwise to engineer initial conditions so as to make an intelligence explosion survivable? How could one achieve a controlled detonation? To get closer to an answer to this question, we must make our way through a fascinating landscape of topics and considerations. Read the book and learn about oracles, genies, singletons; about boxing methods, tripwires, and mind crime; about humanity's cosmic endowment and differential technological development; indirect normativity, instrumental convergence, whole brain emulation and technology couplings; Malthusian economics and dystopian evolution; artificial intelligence, and biological cognitive enhancement, and collective intelligence. This profoundly ambitious and original book picks its way carefully through a vast tract of forbiddingly difficult intellectual terrain. Yet the writing is so lucid that it somehow makes it all seem easy. After an utterly engrossing journey that takes us to the frontiers of thinking about the human condition and the future of intelligent life, we find in Nick Bostrom's work nothing less than a reconceptualization of the essential task of our time. 2014-07-03 time of publication of the book, [-OUP Oxford-]"

Critical Theory and Science Fiction

Original Synopsis

"Critical Theory and Science Fiction has a total of 226 pages which are papers from writer 'Vivian E. Jackson'. "Critical Theory and Science Fiction: A Lens Into Technology in Education," looks to show that reflection is our quantum leap into a past that provides the reasons for our challenges in education. Through reflection, we gain perspectives on how to best change a future that will ultimately become our history. "This text is an important and much-needed contribution to the study and analysis of the issues of technology and science fiction and their relationship to curriculum as well as the broader field of education. Jackson develops a critical theory of technology. Rather than simply accepting technological advancements, the work demystifies and questions the impacts of technology in new, critical, insightful, and exciting ways. A must-read." -William M. Reynolds, Georgia Southern University, "Curriculum: A River Runs Through It" "Using science fiction as a way to look at contemporary education philosophy and practice would seem an unlikely technique, and so it is likely to succeed. Science fiction remains remarkably advanced over the education establishment, which like the military is always getting ready to deal with the previous situation. Utopia-Gr., u-topos-means nowhere, or, moving the space, now here. Only the arts anticipate the future because only the artist lives in the present." -Eric McLuhan, "The Role of Thunder in Finnegans Wake, and Laws of Media: The New Science" (Marshall McLuhan, co-author) 2010-07 time of publication of the book, [-Hillcrest Publishing Group-]"
