"Culture After Humanism" asks what happens to the authority of traditional Western modes of thought in the wake of postcolonial theory. Drawing on examples from music, architecture, literature, philosophy and art, Iain Chambers investigates moments of tension, interruptions which transform our perception of the world and test the limits of language, art and technology.
In a series of interlinked discussions, ranging in focus from Susan Sontag's novel "The Volcano Lover" to the philosophy of Martin Heidegger, Jimi Hendrix and Baroque architecture and music, Chambers weaves together a critique of Western humanism, exploring issues of colonization and migration, language and identity. "Culture After Humanism" offers a new approach to cultural history, a 'post-humanist' perspective which challenges our sense of a world in which the subject is sovereign language, the transparent medium of its agency, and truth, the product of reason.
