ABSTRACT

This article argues the case for posthuman critical theory within the context of the Anthropocene, as both the convergence of posthumanist and postanthropocentric discourses and their development in a qualitatively new and more complex direction. By adopting a cartographic approach to the posthuman, the article surveys recent scholarly production in the field and argues for the need to rethink subjectivity as a collective assemblage that encompasses human and nonhuman actors, technological mediation, animals, plants, and the planet as a whole. Resting on a monistic ontology drawn from critical Spinozism and Deleuzian vital materialism, the article makes the case for posthuman ethics as the expression of affirmative compositions of transversal, multiple, and collective practices of becoming-posthuman.
