Overview

Cultural Writing. Science. Psychoanalysis. Edited by Jacques Houis, Paolo Mieli & Mark Stafford. From computer science to bioengineering, new technologies are transforming human reality. Technological extensions and interventions are altering the ways we relate to ourselves and the world. Psychoanalysts, together with scientists, scholars, artists, and poets, examine these transformations through discussions in such fields as Artificial Intelligence, Space Technology, Electronic Music, New Media, Medicine, Genetics, and Cryonics. The result of an unprecedented forum, this book asks how we can begin to address what Serge Leclaire called "an ethics suitable to the current mutation of our relationship to life and death."
