Human Rights in a Posthuman World

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses a full account of the variegated discourse of the posthuman, which is a recent discursive invention to the theory and practice of human rights. It attempts to understand the posthuman through a redressal of several orders of reading deficits. The latter part of the chapter looks at the apocalyptic constructions of the ‘posthuman’, the benign posthuman, and the situated emancipator discourse.

Keywords:   variegated discourse, posthuman, reading deficits, apocalyptic constructions, benign posthuman, situated emancipator discourse, human rights
