Media After Kittler, Hardback Book

Media After Kittler Hardback

Edited by Eleni Ikoniadou, Scott Wilson

Part of the Media Philosophy series

Description

Is it possible to incite a turn towards Media Philosophy, a field that accounts for the autonomy of media, for machine agency and for the new modalities of thought and subjectivity that these enable, rather than dwelling on representations, audiences and extensions of the self?In the wake of the field-defining work done by Friedrich Kittler, this important collection of essays takes a philosophical approach to the end of the media era in the traditional sense and outlines the implications of a turn that sees media become concepts of the middle, of connection, and of multitude-across diverse disciplines and theoretical perspectives.

An expert panel of contributors, working at the cutting edge of media theory, analyze the German thinker's legacy and the possibilities his thought can unfold for media theory.

This book examines the present and future condition of mediation, within the wider context of media studies in a digital age.
