Patricia MacCormack is Reader in English, Communication, Film and Media at Anglia Ruskin University, UK, and author of Cinesexuality.
'This is an exhilarating and thought-provoking book. Neither judgmental nor unconditionally celebratory of the posthuman condition, MacCormack's analyses make for compelling reading. The core of the argument is a passionate call for rethinking ethics starting from the multiple '"others" who were never quite human to begin with. Posthumanism will never be the same again after reading this remarkable study.' Rosi Braidotti, University of Utrecht, The Netherlands 'Written in the finest tradition of Spinoza's practical philosophy, Patricia MacCormack's Posthuman Ethics envisages a life without the dominating discourse of human subjectivity, the undoing of us as the basic ethical standard. Building upon Michel Serres' concept of grace as a stepping aside, a ceding of place through ineffable silence, MacCormack forces us to think the unthinkable as pure flesh, as creative becoming.' Colin Gardner, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA
