  • Biomediaby Eugene Thacker

    University of Minnesota Press 2004; US$ 75.00

    As biotechnology defines the new millennium, genetic codes and computer codes increasingly merge?life understood as data, flesh rendered programmable. Where this trend will take us, and what it might mean, is what concerns Eugene Thacker in this timely book, a penetrating look into the intersection of molecular biology and computer science in our day... more...

  • After Lifeby Eugene Thacker

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 29.00

    Life is one of our most basic concepts, and yet when examined directly it proves remarkably contradictory and elusive, encompassing both the broadest and the most specific phenomena. We can see this uncertainty about life in our habit of approaching it as something at once scientific and mystical, in the return of vitalisms of all types, and in the... more...

  • In the Dust of This Planetby Eugene Thacker

    John Hunt Publishing 2011; US$ 14.99

    The world is increasingly unthinkable, a world of planetary disasters, emerging pandemics, and the looming threat of extinction. In this book Eugene Thacker suggests that we look to the genre of horror as offering a way of thinking about the unthinkable world. To confront this idea is to confront the limit of our ability to understand the world in... more...

  • Exploitby Alexander R. Galloway; Eugene Thacker

    University of Minnesota Press 2007; US$ 57.00

    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...

  • TechGnosisby Erik Davis; Eugene Thacker

    North Atlantic Books 2015; US$ 21.95

    ? TechGnosis is an essential work, tracing the co-evolution of technology with the urge for transcendence. It helps put today's obsession with the singularity and post-human consciousness into perspective, without condemning them as mere symptoms of millenarian fantasy nor worshipping at the altar of the eschaton.? ?Douglas Rushkoff, author of Present... more...

  • A Short History of Decayby E. M. Cioran; Richard Howard; Eugene Thacker

    Arcade Publishing 2012; US$ 14.95

    E. M. Cioran confronts the place of today's world in the context of human history—focusing on such major issues of the twentieth century as human progress, fanaticism, and science—in this nihilistic and witty collection of aphoristic essays concerning the nature of civilization in mid-twentieth-century Europe. Touching upon Man's need to worship,... more...

  • Drawn and Quarteredby E. M. Cioran; Richard Howard; Eugene Thacker

    Arcade Publishing 2012; US$ 14.95

    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...

  • Anathemas and Admirationsby E. M. Cioran; Richard Howard; Eugene Thacker

    Arcade Publishing 2012; US$ 14.95

    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. Scott Fitzgerald, the poet Paul Valery, and Mircea Eliade, among others. In alternating sections of aphorisms?his "anathemas"?he delivers insights on such topics as solitude, flattery, vanity,... more...
