Digital Theory Live: The Culture Machine Interviews - co-edited with Janneke Adema and Pete Woodbridge.

How To Be Inhuman - many thinkers are currently attempting to replace the tyranny of the human with an emphasis on the nonhuman, the posthuman, the postanthropocentric and the multi-scalar logic of the Anthropocene. Yet, as I show in Pirate Philosophy, such ‘post-theory theorists' continue to remain intricately bound up with both the human and humanism in the very performance of their attempt to think beyond them. Regardless of what anti-humanist and nonhuman philosophies they profess – be they inspired by Marx, Foucault, Deleuze, BUtler, Haraway, Kittler, Latour or Laruelle – in their practices, in the forms their work takes, in the ways they create, publish and disseminate it, in their associated upholding of notions of individualism, individual rights, property and so on, they continue to act in terms of a (neo)liberal humanist model of what it is to be and do as a theorist, working as what are in effect entrepreneurs of themselves and their own subjectivities. How To Be Inhuman explores the possibilities for an inhuman mode of theory. This is theory that operates in terms of neither the human nor the nonhuman, the “I” nor the “we,” the private nor the public – nor indeed the collective. Instead, inhuman theory involves a form of communicating with the nonhuman that takes account of and assumes an intra-active relation with what is not human (be it animal, plant life, technology, the environment, or other non-human entities and energies). The inhuman here is a form of acting, thinking, and working with the non-human, in other words: it is an “inhumanities” based on the performance of a non-unified, non-sovereign, non-essentialist subject, rather than the sovereign, unified, individual human subject of the humanities and of (neo)liberal humanism.
