The Virtuous Cyborg - Coming Spring 2018

The Virtuous Cyborg.2-1Banner
How would you know if you were a good cyborg? My latest philosophy book explores this and other problems of contemporary cyberethics. The Virtuous Cyborg will be published in Spring 2018 by Squint Books, the cultural and political imprint of renowned poetry micro-press Eyewear Publishing.

You can read the blurb, and a short introduction for the publisher and author, over on the book blog at cyborg.ihobo.com.

Just need to update that book announcement, since the date has changed and I’m using it as my pinned Tweet on Twitter. Nothing more to report, I’m afraid… still busy – but Babette Babich has my edits to the new dialogue, so we are getting closer to another fascinating adventure of Babich and Bateman. Stay tuned!


The Virtuous Cyborg: Spring 2018

Giacomeli TreeThrough a mutual decision between myself and the publisher, The Virtuous Cyborg has been put back to early 2018. This is mainly because I am too busy with both consultancy and teaching commitments this Autumn, and will not be able to get fully behind promoting the book before January-February 2018.

We are now listing the release date as ‘Spring 2018’.

Opening image is Abstract Modern Tree Landscape by Amy Giacomelli, which I found here on Fine Art America. As ever, no copyright infringement is intended and I will take the image down if asked.


Temporal Flux

Apologies for the slow running of comments, new content etc. but I’ve been travelling all over the place and am also swamped with various projects. I am progressing with Babich and Bateman III… hope normal service will resume soon! (If you’ve left a comment, firstly – thank you! – secondly, I hope to get back to you later this week.)


Coming Soon: Babich and Bateman Rides Again

DErlwLuXkAAXizsAlthough I have been robustly overworked in recent weeks, I have managed to break ground on the editing for the final segment of the Babich and Bateman dialogues, this time looking at Nietzsche, music, and the psychological tricks of corporations. I don’t know when it will be ready (September is my guess), or how many parts it will be, or which tangents will get added between now and this putative future moment, but all will be revealed in good time…
