Absolutely. Please believe that I was not trying to lend you any kind
of Sokal-hoaxesque affiliations...
And you may know or remember than my own cultural roots and references
are as much removed from critical studies, or at least their
mainstream, as yours.
But I wonder if to ignore flatly and entirely whatever has been said
and thought on posthumanism in this context is entirely a good thing
for transhumanists, if anything in order to be post-postmodernists
rather than pre-postmodernists, as we sometimes risk to appear...
