Posthumanism: beyond anthropotechnic and nomadism

Marco Maureira ( Barcelona Science and Technology Studies Group (STS-b), Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona (Barcelona, España)


The emergence of life in our societies stablishes one of the fundamental dimensions to understand our contemporary world. Biomedicine, biosecurity, biotechnology and bioterrorism are just some of the new concepts that appear due to this phenomenon. In this sense, this article will introduce one of the main current theories that aim to analyse this reconceptualization of life: posthumanism. Specifically, we will work on the proposals made by the Italian-Australian philosopher Rosi Braidotti and the German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk. Simultaneously, a project of radical allokhronía will be proposed towards drift in evolution. This is made in order to overcome the persistence of the anthropocentric view that remains the main problem of both proposals for improvement of humanism.

Key words: posthumanism, life, anthropotechnic, nomadism, evolution.
