The Will to Technology and the Culture of Nihilism



Arthur Kroker

A multimedia/print book launch and lecture.

The Will to Technology and the Culture of Nihilism explores the future of the twenty-first century in the language of technological destiny. Presenting Heidegger, Nietzsche and Marx as prophets of technological nihilism, it will be argued that every aspect of contemporary culture, society and politics is coded by the dynamic unfolding of the ‘will to technology’.

Posthumanism, then, as a harbinger of our technological future.
