Post-Vital Evolution

In Uncategorized on October 6, 2010 at 4:44 pm

Stiegler’s adaptation/extension of Leroi-Gourhan’s theory of “techne-evolution” does a tremendous amount of work in emphasizing the ways that genealogies of subjectivity and literacy often occlude the role of technics in evolution “prior” to that of (human) history or of the (hominid) human “itself.” However, as we discovered in class last week, it might be a little vague as to the role of technics in whatever we might call “evolution” (or what takes over the role of traditional, “biological” evolution) today. After the cut, a few images to work though in class towards a preliminary hypothesis concerning what we might call “post-vital evolution.”
