I didn’t find anything special of note (that is, of the sort of stuff that I’d typically blog about) in the PostHuman positions presentations (most of which I found quite good) (well, I suppose of note was one that did reference GhostInTheShell, but the interpretation of this and its potential relevance to I and my readers is a topic that will wait for another post), but I did in the questions.
PostHuman seems to assume a cartesian thing (mind/body division), but PostHuman comes after PostModern which denies the mind/body division
PostHuman seems to concern itself with crossing boundaries - cyborg, gender, etc….
In one presentation, there was something along the lines of stating that certain oriental references (a la Keanu Reeves in The Matrix) is “appropriation” by western society - and yet, I see a tension between that view and the desire of certain groups to interpret this as not appropriation but as acceptance (as per Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).
PostHuman is post humanism which is rooted in Cartesian mind/body division.
