Video: Video: A video on Posthumanism theory ft. Nietzsche, Deleuze, Donna Haraway and Bernard Stiegler

This is the prophesied follow-up to my fastpunch through humanism, covering some 20th century reactions to humanist thought. I hypothesize that we're at something of a standoff between humanism and posthumanism, as our political and educational institutions are struggling to terms with changing technical contexts. Addendum: Sometimes posthumanism is confused with transhumanism, which I had planned to cover in this video but it was getting too long. Transhumanism is often humanistic in that it privileges the same capacities that humanism does--intellect, memory, progress, consciousness--and proposes that our bodies can be technologically or genetically augmented to improve these capacities in new stages of human develepment-- uploading our consciousness into the cloud or staving off mortality. Posthumanists, by and large, tend to de-emphasize the supposed value of those ends in the first place, although there is some overlap Thanks for watching!
