From the ground-breaking explorations of such figures as Freud, Heidegger, Deleuze/Guattari and Derrida to the work of more recent theorists like Bernard Stiegler, Friedrich Kittler and Katherine Hayles, it is becoming possible to speak of a new technological turn in contemporary continental theory. Yet despite the plethora of work in the field there has not been any sustained attempt to think through the larger philosophical, cultural and political implications of the new technologies.In this collection, a group of internationally-known figures within the fields of philosophy, linguistics and cultural studies come together to consider the meaning of technicity at the beginning of the 21st century.In the twenty-first century maelstrom of electronic media, cybernetics, technocapitalism, and science-fiction-made-flesh, editors Bradley and Armand argue that it is essential to re-think technicity [...] so as to come to terms with the vicissitudes of contemporary subjectivity and selfhood.--D.
