As biotechnology defines the new millennium, genetic codes and computer codes increasingly merge?life understood as data, flesh rendered programmable.

The world is increasingly unthinkable, a world of planetary disasters, emerging pandemics, and the looming threat of extinction.

Alexander R. Galloway and Eugene Thacker challenge the widespread assumption that networks are inherently egalitarian. Instead, they contend that there exist new modes of control entirely native to networks, modes that are at once highly centralized and dispersed, corporate and subversive. In this provocative book, they argue that a whole new topology... more...

In this collection of aphorisms and short essays, E.M. Cioran sets about the task of peeling off the layers of false realities with which society masks the truth. For him, real hope lies in this task, and thus, while he perceives the world darkly, he refuses to give in to despair. He hits upon this ultimate truth by developing his notion of human... more...

In this collection of essays and epigrams, E.M. Cioran gives us portraits and evaluations?which he calls "admirations"?of Samuel Beckett, Jorge Luis Borges, F.
