Description

In celebration of the 250th anniversary of the birth of G.W.F. Hegel, the author gives us a reading of the philosophical giant that changes our way of thinking about our new posthuman era. No ordinary study of Hegel, ‘Hegel in a Wired Brain’ investigates what he might have had to say about the idea of the ‘wired brain’ – what happens when a direct link between our mental processes and a digital machine emerges. The book explores the phenomenon of a wired brain effect, and what might happen when we can share our thoughts directly with others, and hones in on the key question of how it shapes our experience and status as ‘free’ individuals and asks what it means to be human when a machine can read our minds.
