Synopsis: Ethics is customarily understood as being concerned with questions of responsibility for and in the face of an other who is like we assume ourselves to be. Such an anthropocentric presumption has been significantly challenged by computer technology, intelligent systems, virtual realities, and cybernetics, all of which introduce the possibility of others that are and remain otherwise. Thinking Otherwise investigates the unique challenges, complications, and possibilities introduced by these different forms of otherness. The author formulates alternative ways of proceeding that are able to respond to and to be responsible for these other different forms of otherness in order to generate and develop alternative ways of thinking that are and remain oriented otherwise.
From the Back Cover:
Thinking Otherwise will become a classic like Jacques Ellul's Technological Society and Jean Baudrillard's Simulations. This erudite and innovative book totally reorients our thinking away from binary logic. The philosophical dimensions of information and communication technology have never been outlined better. The author is bilingual, knowing both philosophy and ICT's with brilliance. His critique of digital reason and his machine-as-other turn communication ethics on its head. In this post-metaphysical age skeptical of the humanities, Thinking Otherwise demonstrates perfectly how the history of ideas opens up an alternative pathway.
