New Publication: Prof. Dr. Žarko Paić


Prof. Dr. Žarko Paić, research fellow at International Center of Studies on Contemporary Nihilism (CeNic), has published The Superfluity of the Human. Reflections on the Posthuman Condition (Schwabe 2023). The author argues that, concerning the progress and development of the techno-scientific mind in the application of artificial intelligence, the anthropological definition of man has not only become outdated and ineffective, but “man” itself has become superfluous. Taking into account philosophical perspectives on technological singularity, extropianism and the nexus between posthumanism and transhumanism, Paić considers the possibility of a new way of thinking about metaphysics within the labyrinth of language. These ideas are developed by critically confronting numerous approaches to this problem, from Heidegger, Severino, Anders, Deleuze, Simondon and Wiener.
