Product Description

In this issue of Mute we revisit the question of ‘the human’ in the age of biopolitics. What do philosophers, activists and ‘pro-revolutionaries’ have to say about homo sapiens in a world where monstrous claims on value demand populations be reduced to ‘bare (hardworking) life’? From repression of messy ‘species being’ in revolutionary milieus, to the managerial dream of putting supposed species traits like language and empathy to work, the stakes of determining humanness, or resisting that determination, are high.
