Book Description:
New developments in life science and information science invite rigorous inquiries into what we mean by and ascribe to 'life'. 'Artificial Life' provides a summary of the key technical and legal developments and an account of why these developments are so unsettling to established categories like 'human', 'technology', and 'nature'. In five chapters that discuss spaces of life; theories of life; the industrialization of life; spaces of property; and new imaginaries 'Artificial Life': explains how research in biology and informational technology questions the division between human and animal, human and machine, bodies and data, cells and information; provides an account vitalist and bio philosophical thinking from Whitehead to Deleuze; and elucidates a new set of ideas and methods focused on complexity and emergence. 'Artificial Life' outlines the principal themes with economy and directness; while the focus is on issues of active social concern like stem cells research which have stimulated theoretical and methodological developments in the humanities and social sciences.
