The first English-language anthology of Vilem Flusser's work, this volume displays the extraordinary range and subtlety of his intellect. A number of the essays gathered here introduce and elaborate his theory of communication. While taking dystopian, posthuman visions of communication technologies into account, Flusser celebrates their liberatory and humanizing aspects. Other essays present Flusser's thoughts on the future of writing, the revolutionary nature of photography, and his unconventional concept of posthistory. Taken together, these essays confirm Flusser's importance and pre-science within contemporary philosophy.
