This collection of writings explores the theory
and praxis of technicity in contemporary thought.
  From the ground-breaking explorations of such
figures as Freud, Heidegger, Deleuze/Guattari and
Derrida to the work of more recent theorists like
Bernard Stiegler, Friedrich Kittler and Katherine
Hayles, it is becoming possible to speak of a new
"technological turn" in contemporary continental
theory. Yet despite the plethora of work in the
field there has not been any sustained attempt to
think through the larger philosophical, cultural
and political implications of the new technologies.

In this collection, a group of
internationally-known figures within the fields
of philosophy, linguistics and cultural studies
come together to consider the meaning of
"technicity" at the beginning of the 21st century.

Contributors: Bernard Stiegler, Louis Armand,
Arthur Bradley, Christopher Johnson, Hartmut
Winkler, J. Hillis Miller, Belinda Barnet, Geert
Lovink and Kenneth C. Werbin, Darren Tofts,
McKenzie Wark, Niall Lucy, Laurent Milesi, Michael Greaney, Mark Amerika.

Arthur Bradley is senior lecturer in the
Department of English at Lancaster University. He
has published widely on continental philosophy
and is the author of Negative Theology and Modern
French Philosophy (London: Routledge, 2004).

Louis Armand is director of the InterCultural
Studies programme in the Philosophy Faculty of
Charles University, Prague. His books include
Literate Technologies: Language, Cognition,
Technicity; Techne: James Joyce, Hypertext &
Technology; and Incendiary Devices: Discourses of the Other.
