"What does it mean to think beyond humanism? Is it possible to craft a mode of philosophy, ethics, and interpretation that rejects the classic humanist divisions of self and other, mind and body, society and nature, human and animal, organic and technological? Can a new kind of humanities - posthumanities - respond to the redefinition of humanity's place in the world by both the technological and the biological or "green" continuum in which the "human" is but one life form among many?" "Exploring how both critical thought along with cultural practice have reacted to this radical repositioning, Cary Wolfe - one of the founding figures in the field of animal studies and posthumanist theory - ranges across bioethics, cognitive science, animal ethics, gender, and disability to develop a theoretical and philosophical approach responsive to our changing understanding of ourselves and our world."--BOOK JACKET.
