The Aino people of Japan are very little known and where treated as savages when discovered by western travellers. Their religion was rich and cultured and this book opens the eyes of the reader to a culture that so few people know of. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Can a monkey own a selfie? Can a chimp use habeas corpus to sue for freedom? Can androids be citizens? Increasingly, such difficult questions have moved from the realm of science fiction into the realm of everyday life, and scholars and laypeople alike are struggling to find ways to grasp new notions of personhood. Posthuman Folklore is the first work of its kind: both an overview of posthumanism as it applies to folklore studies and an investigation of “vernacular posthumanisms”—the ways in which people are increasingly performing the posthuman. Posthumanism calls for a close investigation of what is meant by the term “human” and a rethinking of this, our most basic ontological category. What, exactly, is human? What, exactly, am I? There are two main threads of posthumanism: the first dealing with the increasingly slippery slope between “human” and “animal,” and the second dealing with artificial intelligences and the growing cyborg quality of human culture. This work deals with both these threads, seeking to understand the cultural roles of this shifting notion of “human” by centering its investigation into the performances of everyday life. From funerals for AIBOs, to furries, to ghost stories told by Alexa, people are increasingly engaging with the posthuman in myriad everyday practices, setting the stage for a wholesale rethinking of our humanity. In Posthuman Folklore, author Tok Thompson traces both the philosophies behind these shifts, and the ways in which people increasingly are enacting such ideas to better understand the posthuman experience of contemporary life.

When Animals And Folklore Run The Asylum
Language: en
Pages: 140
Authors: Michael DeBenedictis
Categories: Fiction
Type: BOOK - Published: 2016-04-03 - Publisher:

This compilation of short stories is a collection of narratives about the inner thoughts and inner workings of animals and folklore in our daily lives; what we see and what we don't. It's the other side of the perspective that impacts us equally, presented without our own perceptions that would only blur their purity. This compilation of poems is a collection of poetic translation of the analysis of the world around us; the inner workings of things in the external world and within ourselves from where we pull our own inspiration. The intention of this book is to make animals, folklore, and the imaginative spirit the main character of study, and to leave aside - for once - the perspective that is far too common to us to ever be challenged anymore, from mere repetition; our own.
