    This paper will examine how agency is circulated through human and non-human worlds in the creation and maintenance of society from an Indigenous point of view. Through processes of colonization, the corruption of essential categories of Indigenous conceptions of the world (the feminine and land) has led to a disconnect between how this agency is manifested in by: Insect Media analyzes how insect forms of social organization—swarms, hives, webs, and distributed intelligence—have been used to structure modern media technologies and the network society. Through close engagement with the pioneering work of insect ethologists, posthumanist philosophers, media theorists, and contemporary filmmakers and artists, Jussi Parikka provides a radical new.

    The essays in Shakespeare’s Things: Shakespearean Theatre and the Non-Human World in History, Theory, and Performance renew attention to non-human influence and agency in the plays, exploring how Shakespeare anticipates new materialist thought, thing theory, and object studies while presenting accounts of intention, action, and expression. Though Euro-Western thought has made movements to understand and embrace non-human contributions to the world, Indigenous histories are often still understood as stories rather than events, and agency as it is applied to humans is redefined before being applied to non-humans.

And I agree, many non human characters do still end up being human in temperament – that’s probably why I often remember them as human even if they technically weren’t.

E.g I have also often thought of Hobbits as the humans of middle earth, as their physiological differences are minimal and their behaviour very human.

In this way, the book contributes to development of a suitably revised, comprehensive understanding of rationality, one that befits the 21st century, one that is adequately informed by recent investigations of science, pathology, non-human thought, emotion, and even enigmatic Chinese texts that might previously have seemed to be expressions of.

For Aristotle, the soul, or psuche (the root of our word psychology), is simply that which distinguishes living things from nonliving things.

All living things have a nutritive soul, which governs bodily health and growth. Animals and humans differ from plants in having an appetitive soul, which governs movement and impulse.

Humans differ from. The Man-Kzin Wars is a series that has humans and aliens. John Ringo has several series with a LOT of aliens and humans. Andre Norton has a lot of books/series with aliens and humans. Some are dated (she started getting published in and her last new book was published 2 months before her death ) but she does tell a rip-roaring tale.

In recent years, many disciplines within the humanities have become increasingly concerned with non-human actors and entities. The environment, animals, machines, objects, weather, and other non-human beings and things have taken center stage to challenge assumptions about what we have traditionally called "the human.".

While contemporary philosophers tend to refrain from raising ontological and ethical concerns with vegetal life, Michael Marder puts this life at the forefront of.

Animal languages are forms of non-human animal communication that show similarities to human s communicate by using a variety of signs such as sounds or movements.

Such signing may be considered complex enough to be called a form of language if the inventory of signs is large, the signs are relatively arbitrary, and the animals seem to produce them with a degree of volition (as. Indeed, it is naming something that enables us to communicate about it in specific terms, whether the object named is human or non-human, animate or inanimate.

Compulsively readable and yet also pushing the boundaries of what is possible in terms of language and narrative, this is a brilliant and disturbing book that will make you rethink everything you thought you understood about non-human animal sentience and agency.
