Abstract

This essay tests the hypothesis that “posthumanism” today constitutes the most radical questioning of the “subject.” It does so by putting posthumanist theories and concepts by proponents like Alain Badiou, Jean Baudrillard, N. Katherine Hayles and others to the test in a juxtaposing reading of The Matrix. The essay argues that cultural criticism today has to reconnect popular posthumanist scenarios in what could be called “science-fiction-theory” with earlier forms of materialist and poststructuralist critique.
