9780813530598: Representations of the Post/Human: Monsters, Aliens and Others in Popular Culture
Reseña del editor:

Microchips. Genetic modification of plants. Cloning. Advances in technology promise to shape our lives more profoundly than ever before. Exciting new discoveries in reproductive, genetic, and information technologies all serve to call into question the immutability of the boundaries between humans, animals, and machines. The category of the "posthuman" reflects the implications of such new technologies on contemporary culture, especially in their capacity to reconfigure the human body and to challenge our most fundamental understandings of human nature.Elaine L. Graham explores these issues as they are expressed within popular culture and the creative arts. From the myth of Prometheus and the Gothic horror of Frankenstein's monster to contemporary postmodern science fiction, a gallery of fantastic creatures haunts Western myth, religion, and literature. They serve to connect contemporary debates with enduring concerns about the potential--and the limits--of human creativity.
This book breaks new ground in drawing together a wide range of literature on new technologies and their ethical implications. In her explorations of the monstrous and the cyborg, Graham covers the Jewish legend of the golem, the Human Genome Project, "Star Trek: Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager," Fritz Lang's "Metropolis, " Donna Haraway's cyborg writing, andmany other related topics. This book will interest students in cultural studies, literature, ethics, religion, information technology, and the life sciences.

Descripción Rutgers University Press. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Representations of the Post/Human, Morris A. Graham, "Graham covers what it means to be human, taking a different slant by exploring the matters of 'posthumanism.' Graham aptly explores the impact of today's technologies and representations of that impact in popular culture. . . . Recommended."-Library Journal "What does it mean to be human in light of the digital, cybernetic, and biomedical innovations being developed and used today? In Representations of the Post/Human, Elaine Graham addresses this question with clarity and power, giving us a thorough, compelling analysis of these technologies, as well as the political debates that surround them."-Sharon Welch, author of Sweet Dreams in America: Making Ethics and Spirituality Work Microchips. Genetic modification of plants. Cloning. Exciting new discoveries in reproductive, genetic, and information technologies all serve to call into question the immutability of the boundaries between humans, animals, and machines. The category of the "posthuman" reflects the implications of such new technologies on contemporary culture, especially in their capacity to reconfigure the human body and to challenge our most fundamental understandings of human nature. Elaine L. Graham explores these issues as they are expressed within popular culture and the creative arts. From the myth of Prometheus and the Gothic horror of Frankenstein's monster to contemporary postmodern science fiction, a gallery of fantastic creatures haunts Western myth, religion, and literature. They serve to connect contemporary debates with enduring concerns about the potential-and the limits-of human creativity. Elaine L. Graham is Samuel Ferguson Professor of Social and Pastoral Theology at the University of Manchester (U.K.). She is the author of several books, including Transforming Practice: Pastoral Theology in an Age of Uncertainty. Nº de ref. de la librería B9780813530598
