Focusing on the interdependence between human, animal, and machine, posthumanism redefines the meaning of the human being previously assumed in knowledge production. This movement challenges some of the most foundational concepts in educational theory and has implications within educational research, curriculum design and pedagogical interactions. In this volume, a group of international contributors use posthumanist theory to present new modes of institutional collaboration and pedagogical practice. They position posthumanism as a comprehensive theoretical project with connections to philosophy, animal studies, environmentalism, feminism, biology, queer theory and cognition. Researchers and scholars in curriculum studies and philosophy of education will benefit from the new research agendas presented by posthumanism.

Humanism views the human as the conscious subject of free will against the non-human periphery. Posthumanism puts forth a major change to humanism by undoing the separation of human from non-human. Human, All Too (Post)Human argues humanism and post-humanism both normalize capitalism, the obstacle to social change. The book makes the case that real change is ending class relations to free humanity from wage labor and place human and non-human in a new order of being.

Під час роботи над книгою авторка побувала майже на всіх континентах, відвідала наукові бази в тропіках Амазонії і на островах Великого бар’єрного рифу, спілкувалася з сотнями людей. Колберт шукає відповідь на питання, що станеться, якщо темпи вимирання прискоряться. Ця книга — не наукова праця. Вона — швидше велетенська стаття для природничого журналу зі світовим ім’ям, яку ми маємо можливість читати українською. Елізабет Колберт у своїй книзі нікого не повчає. Зрештою, навіть не попереджає про наслідки нашого бездумного користування планетою. Вона — майстерна і досвідчена репортерка, яка простими словами розповідає про складні речі, від котрих залежить майбутнє нашої планети і, зрештою, людської цивілізації загалом.
