Deirdre Coleman, "Minds, Bodies, Machines, 1770-1930"
English | ISBN: 0230284671 | PDF | 2011 | 248 pages | 4.4 Mb

It is during the nineteenth century, the age of machinery, that we begin to witness a sustained exploration of the literal and discursive entanglements of minds, bodies, machines. This book opens with Ann Radcliffe's The Mysteries of Udolpho (1794) and ends in the trenches of the First World War.

How We Became Posthuman: Virtual Bodies in Cybernetics, Literature, and Informatics (repost)

How We Became Posthuman: Virtual Bodies in Cybernetics, Literature, and Informatics by N. Katherine Hayles
English | 15 Feb. 1999 | ISBN: 0226321460 | 364 Pages | PDF | 8 MB

In this age of DNA computers and artificial intelligence, information is becoming disembodied even as the "bodies" that once carried it vanish into virtuality. While some marvel at these changes, envisioning consciousness downloaded into a computer or humans "beamed" Star Trek-style, others view them with horror, seeing monsters brooding in the machines. In How We Became Posthuman, N. Katherine Hayles separates hype from fact, investigating the fate of embodiment in an information age.
