For the philosopher Rosi Braidotti, the crisis of the humanities can be overcome by accepting the impact of technological and scientific advances and incorporating new gender perspectives. Braidotti will explain it at the CCCB in a debate within the framework of the +Humans exhibition.
In this lecture, Rosi Braidotti will speak about what she describes as the emergence of a posthuman turn in contemporary culture and scholarship, based on the convergence of posthumanism with post-anthropocentrism. The former concept critiques the universalist idea of ‘Man’ as the alleged ‘measure of all things’. The latter criticizes species hierarchy and the assumption of human exceptionality.
Rosi Braidotti (Latisana, 1954) is Distinguished University Professor and director of the Centre for the Humanities at Utrecht University. Renowned feminist, is one of the most recognized philosophers of the time.
But what are the ethical and political implications of a postumanist and post-anthropocentric universe? What new forms of agency are emerging at the convergence of human with non-human agents? What do posthuman subjects dream of?
