Becoming human: new perspectives on the inhuman condition

Paul Sheehan (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportEdited Book/Anthology


The postmodern condition has delivered us into a world where our "humanity" can no longer be taken for granted. Whether his place is ceded to nature or technology, "man" is no longer "the measure of all things," rather, he is locked into processes in which the only permanence is change. Becoming Human offers a sustained engagement with these and other paradoxes about human being and its nature in the 21st-century world. Beginning with the notion that the human is not an immutable "given" but rather an ever-changing entity, this collection of essays considers our multifarious condition through the perspective of a variety of fields, including philosophy, sociology, literature, and film studies.
