Rosi Braidotti’s ‘The Posthuman’ translated into German and Italian

Vertalingen van The Posthuman, Rosi Braidotti

Rosi Braidotti’s most recent book The Posthuman has now been translated into German (Posthumanismus. Leben jenseits des Menschen) and Italian (Il postumano. La vita oltre il sé, oltre la specie, oltre la morte).

The Posthuman offers both an introduction and a major contribution to contemporary debates on the posthuman. Digital ‘second life’, genetically modified food, advanced prosthetics, robotics and reproductive technologies are familiar facets of our globally linked and technologically mediated societies. This has blurred the traditional distinction between the human and its others, exposing the non-naturalistic structure of the human. Braidotti argues that the challenge of the posthuman condition consists in seizing the opportunities for new social bonding and community building, while pursuing sustainability and empowerment. In the future the book will also be available in Spanish, Korean, Chinese and Turkish.
