Maskinisk darwinism: teknikens naturhistoria hos Samuel Butler och Gilles Deleuze

Eriksson, Jonnie LU (2009) Kultur~Natur : konferens för kulturstudier i Sverige, Norrköping 15-17 juni In Linköping University Conference Proceedings p.299-310
Abstract
This paper provides perspectives on the development of an idea of the machine as a living being in the 20th century by looking at the relationship between the writings of Samuel Butler and Gilles Deleuze concerning the evolution of machines as an extension of—and in competition with—the human organism. Ultimately, Butler and Deleuze both describe a mechanical or “machinic" vitalism and evolutionism beyond the human animal, which conflates the realms of nature and culture.
