EBOOK [P.D.F] Neurotechnology and the End of Finitude Full Pages Details

Details Product: A bold philosophical investigation into technology and the limits of the human A daring, original work of philosophical speculation, Neurotechnology and the End of Finitude mounts a sustained investigation into the possibility that human beings may technologically overcome the transcendental limits of possible experience and envisages what such a transition would look like. Focusing on emergent neurotechnologies, which establish a direct channel of communication between brain and machine, Michael Haworth argues that such technologies intervene at the border between interiority and exteriority, offering the promise of immediacy and the possibility of the mind directly affecting the outside world or even other minds. Through detailed, targeted readings of Kant, Freud, Heidegger, Croce, Jung, and Derrida, Haworth explores the effect of this transformation on human creativity and our relationships with others. He pursues these questions across four distinct but interrelated spheres: the act of artistic creation and the potential for a technologically enabled coincidence of idea and object; the possibility of humanity achieving the infinite creativity that Kant attributed only to God; the relationship between the psyche and the external world in Freudian psychoanalysis and Jungian analytical psychology; and the viability and impact of techno-telepathic communication. Addressing readers interested in contemporary continental philosophy and philosophy of technology, media and communications, and science and technology studies, Neurotechnology and the End of Finitude critically envisions a plausible posthuman future.

the End of Finitude Full Description

A bold philosophical investigation into technology and the limits of the human A

daring, original work of philosophical speculation, Neurotechnology and the End of

Finitude mounts a sustained investigation into the possibility that human beings may

technologically overcome the transcendental limits of possible experience and

envisages what such a transition would look like. Focusing on emergent

neurotechnologies, which establish a direct channel of communication between brain

and machine, Michael Haworth argues that such technologies intervene at the border

between interiority and exteriority, offering the promise of immediacy and the

possibility of the mind directly affecting the outside world or even other

minds. Through detailed, targeted readings of Kant, Freud, Heidegger, Croce, Jung,

and Derrida, Haworth explores the effect of this transformation on human creativity

and our relationships with others. He pursues these questions across four distinct but

interrelated spheres: the act of artistic creation and the potential for a technologically

enabled coincidence of idea and object; the possibility of humanity achieving the

infinite creativity that Kant attributed only to God; the relationship between the

psyche and the external world in Freudian psychoanalysis and Jungian analytical

psychology; and the viability and impact of techno-telepathic

communication. Addressing readers interested in contemporary continental

philosophy and philosophy of technology, media and communications, and science

and technology studies, Neurotechnology and the End of Finitude critically envisions a

plausible posthuman future.
