9780826469892: Abstract Sex: Philosophy, Bio-technology and the Mutations of Desire (Transversals: New Directions in Philosophy)

Astract Sex investigates the impact of advances in contemporary science and information technology on conceptions of sex. Evolutionary theory and the technologies of viral information transfer, cloning and genetic engineering are changing the way we think about human sex, reproduction and the communication of genetic information. Abstract Sex presents a philosophical exploration of this new world of sexual, informatic and capitalist multiplicity, of the accelerated mutation of nature and culture.

Review:

'...Her vision, and it is a vision, is literally a molecular one in which sex is instantiated in any number of biologically, cultutally and technologically define assemblages...Abstract Sex does a good job of developing a productive critique of the anthropomorphic assumptions of much theorising about sex and gender and its technique of magnifying the place of sex and reproduction onto every stratum of nature-culture is a useful reminder of the relatively limited place of human sex across life forms.' (Andrew Goffey)
