Postnaturalism offers an original account of human-technological coevolution and argues that film and media theory, particularly, needs to be reevaluated from the perspective of material interfaces in a constantly changing environment. Extrapolating from Frankenstein films and the resonances they establish between a hybrid monster and spectator hooked into the machinery of cinema, Shane Denson engages debates in science studies and the philosophy of technology to rethink histories of cinema, media, and technology and the affective channels of our own embodiment. The book includes a foreword by media theorist Mark B. N. Hansen.

About the Author:

Shane Denson is a postdoctoral research associate at the Leibniz University of Hanover, Germany, and a DAAD postdoctoral fellow at Duke University. His research interests include film and media theory, seriality, and the philosophy of technology.

Review:

Shane Denson's Postnaturalism develops [an] ambitious, wide-ranging, and deeply compelling argument concerning the originary operation of media in a way that sketches out a much-needed alternative to destructive developments which, expanding the darker strains of poststructuralist anti-humanism, have pitted the human against the material in some kind of cosmological endgame. Postnaturalism will provide a very powerful and timely addition to the literature on posthuman, cosmological technogenesis. Perhaps more clearly than any other account, it reconciles the irreducibility of phenomenality and the imperative to move beyond anthropocentrism as we seek to fathom the postnatural techno-material revolutions that have repeatedly remade and that will no doubt continue to remake the environments from which we emerge and to which we belong before we become and as a condition of becoming human subjects. (Mark B. N. Hansen)

Denson's book [...] is no light fare. For Postnaturalism you have to take your time, but it's definitely worth it. The work is especially to be recommended for those interested in the philosophy of technology, media theory, and anyone who wants to engage with a postnaturalistic metaphysics. (Dominik Hammer Forschungsinstitut für Philosophie Hannover 24)
