The Paradox of the Posthuman: Science Fiction/Techno-Horror Films and Visual Media

 
9783639143799: The Paradox of the Posthuman: Science Fiction/Techno-Horror Films and Visual Media

In the past two decades the concept of the posthuman has emerged as a discourse within philosophy, science fiction, cultural studies and contemporary art. Since it is co-existent with the growth of advanced medical and communication technologies, the posthuman is framed by ideas of mutation, evolution and the development of a species that re-writes what is generally conceived as human. The definition of the posthuman draws on both humanist and anti-humanist concepts that suggest a profound paradox. This book explores the nature of these paradoxes in popular culture, film and art. It examines the way paradox is central to the very nature of the posthuman and considers the changes, contradictions and ideologies inherent in the posthuman and how these affect discourses of the body. In particular it provides close readings of the films Alien Resurrection, GATTACA, Crash and Strange Days, as well as a chapter on the performance artist Stelarc. This book is ideal for those interested in philosophical anthropology, anti-humanism, eugenics, genetic engineering, prosthetics, ethics, science fiction films, art and screen studies.
