(p.182) 8. The Modern Epimetheus: Animals and/as Technology
Animal Alterity

This chapter focuses on the relationship between animals and technology in the emergent culture of science. It describes man-made animals that are prominent in science fiction and examines the negative consequences of their incorporation into culture. The many examples of animals in science fiction texts where the animal subject becomes a product or a technological intervention draw attention to the links between the human–animal boundary and the ethics of rationality and calculation.

Keywords:   animals, technology, science, science fiction, human–animal boundary, rationality
