Book Description Globalization and the Posthuman argues that by globalizing posthumanism through biotechnology, particularly through the invasive interface of humans and machines, we may well interfere with and even undermine the innate quality of human psycho-physiology and the experience of the internal observer, the non-socially constructed self or pure consciousness.

The specter of death is present throughout the novel: the father who takes his son across a ravaged landscape near devoid of animal or plant life realizes that he is dying. He has one bullet in his gun, which the boy is instructed to take his life with if cannibals attack them. That means we need to think differently about ourselves.
I take the posthuman predicament as an opportunity to empower the pursuit of alternative schemes of though, knowledge and self- representation. The posthuman condition urges us to think critically and creatively about who and what we are actually in the process of becoming. It is on this basis that I am interested in determining, in the novels that I critique, the extent to which posthuman subjectivity may be understood as ethico-aesthetic and transversally agential in nature.
Yet this entropic reconfiguration. Research Questions and Provisional Thesis This literature review has been informed by, and supports, two principal research questions: i What contribution does contemporary narrative fiction have to make to the discourse of posthumanism?
