“In a very important shift inside posthumanistic media stories, Bernhard Siegert dissolves the concept that of media right into a community of operations that reproduce, displace, approach, and mirror the differences basic for a given tradition. Cultural thoughts goals to omit our conventional figuring out of media in order to redefine the concept that via anything extra basic than the empiricist learn of a medium’s person or collective makes use of or of its cultural semantics or aesthetics. quite, Siegert seeks to relocate media and tradition on a degree the place the differences among item and function, subject and shape, human and nonhuman, signal and channel, the symbolic and the true are nonetheless within the means of changing into. the result's to show ontology right into a area of all that's intended in German via the notice Kultur.

Cultural concepts contain not just self-referential symbolic practices like examining, writing, counting, or image-making. The research of artifacts as cultural options emphasizes their ontological prestige as “in-betweens,” transferring from first-order to second-order thoughts, from the technical to the inventive, from item to signal, from the traditional to the cultural, from the operational to the representational.

Cultural concepts levels from seafaring, drafting, and consuming to the creation of the sign-signal contrast in outdated and new media, to the replica of anthropological distinction, to the examine of trompe-l’oeils, grids, registers, and doorways. all through, Siegert addresses basic questions of ways ontological differences should be changed by way of chains of operations that method these alleged ontological differences in the ontic.

Grounding posthumanist concept either traditionally and technically, this ebook opens up an important discussion among new German media concept and American postcybernetic discourses.”
