Posthumanizem in posthumano: poskus definicije

Tanja Dominko

Povzetek

Vrsta diskurzov v družbenem obtoku soustvarja, upoveduje, osmišlja in problematizira etos sodobnega človeka, od kulturološkega in filozofsko-teoretskega do literarnega. Pomembno mesto v tej relacijsko gibljivi konfiguraciji zasedata koncepta posthumanega in posthumanizma. V prispevku želim poiskati morebitna skupna izhodišča, stičišča in razhajanja najvidnejših, pogosto precej heterogenih pristopov h koncipiranju posthumanega in posthumanizma, ju ločiti od sorodnih konceptov transhumanega in transhumanizma ter podati lastno videnje problematike.

Ključne besede
