  1. Sexuality in a Context of Speculative Posthumanism: Human-Posthuman Ruptures and Disconnections.Nataliia V. Zahurska - 2019 - Вісник Харківського Національного Університету Імені В. Н. Каразіна. Серія «Філософія. Філософські Перипетії» 60:6-12.
    In this article human-posthuman ruptures and disconnections both in comprehension and in practices, as well as the possibility of epistemological contingency contemporaneously are investigated. This means that an epistemological ruptures and an ontological disconnections of sexuality both differ from one another, and also join together. Since ancient times both sensitive and sensible practices of sexuality were considered the best mode to concern to sexual care of self. It has shown that, in relation to sexuality, a correlation of epistemological discontinuity and (...)

AUP, by contrast, leaves the nature of posthuman agency to be settled empirically (or technologically). Given AUP there are no “future proof” constraints on the strangeness of posthuman agents. -/- In Posthuman Life I defended (...)

  • Posthuman Life: The Galapagos Objection.David Roden - manuscript
    In my book Posthuman Life: Philosophy at the Edge of the Human (Routledge 2014) I set out a recursive account of the conditions for posthumanity: the Disconnection Thesis (DT). The DT states that a being is posthuman iff: -/- 1) It has ceased to belong to WH (the "Wide Human" socio-technical network) as a result of technical alteration; 2) Or it is a wide descendent of such a being (outside WH) (PHL 112) -/- Jon Cogburn's "Galapagos objection" attempts to show (...)
