About this book

This bracing volume collects work on Italian writers and filmmakers that engage with nonhuman animal subjectivity. These contributions address 3 major strands of philosophical thought: perceived borders between man and animals, historical and fictional crises, and human entanglement with the nonhuman and material world.

Reviews

"Animals and the Posthuman in Italian Literature and Film is an elegant and musing collection on what it means to be alive and thinking today. The volume contains a wonderful preface by Italian philosopher, Roberto Marchesini , who sets out the stakes of the work beautifully. Indeed, it has been a long time since I've come across such a powerful combination of erudition, cutting-edge readings of continential philosophy, and, though this may seem surprising given the title, humanity." - Timothy Campbell, Professor of Italian Studies and Chair of Romance Studies, Cornell University, USA
