Description:
Students will examine a number of contemporary issues including: creative possibilities of/in cyberlife, the art of living as artificial existence, Deleuze's rehabilitation of the monad, Levinas' ethics of the other, media aesthetics, media culture as unaware of its potential as post-technological event, and the ethics of singularity. This will be done through a close reading of such key thinkers as Michel Serres, Marshall McLuhan, Gregory Ulmer, Avital Ronell, Shelley Jackson, Vilem Flusser and others.
