Contemporary Critical Theories: Writing, Technology, Humanity: The Work of Bernard Stiegler

COM 535/ENG 534/FRE 535

Info tab content
Bernard Stiegler's (1952-2020) writing is driven by the question of technology in the longue durée of social development, philosophical speculation, and political economy. In an unprecedented elaboration of the implications of understanding the human as a technical entity, Stiegler confronts predicaments concerning practices of education, transformations of "disruptive" capitalism, effects of computational automation on employment, the psyche and the capacity for reason, and the outlook for a world defined by the anthropocene. We read Stiegler's most important work and relevant philosophical and topical texts (from Plato to Greta Thunberg).
