What is Posthumanism? by Cary Wolfe: A Review

A review of the book What is Posthumanism? by Cary Wolfe published in Curator magazine. This perspective on posthumanism focuses largely on the ontological relationship of man to his environment, specifically other species, and how our changing definitions of humanity could broaden to include animals as equally valid sentient species with whom we share the planet. Considering animals as valid sentient entities rather than objects is one of the positive by-products of changing definitions of what it means to be human, or just sapient rather than particularly human. A good over-view of this anti-anthropocentric aspect of posthumanism, even if you don’t read the book.
