520 |bTyson E. Lewis and Richard Kahn argue for a new critical
theory of the monster as an imaginary other on the margins
of human and animal. Through a unique combination of
critical, posthumanist, and educational theories, the
authors engage in a surreal journey into the worlds of
feral children, alien reptoids, and faery faiths in order
to understand how social movements are renegotiating the
boundaries of community. Part philosophy of imagination,
part political theory, and part pedagogical critique, this
book is a twenty-first century bestiary - a catalog to
navigate the monstrous world in which we live.
520 1 "By engaging an encyclopedic range of figures from the
philosophical tradition and popular culture, Lewis and
Kahn lead us on a fascinating journey to discover the
monsters that populate our posthuman world. We are
confronted by horrible and fearsome beasts of violence,
exploitation, and destruction, but we also recognize
ourselves in creative monsters that blur the boundaries
between human and nonhuman life. Most impressively, Lewis
and Kahn propose paths to train the monsters of our world,
a monstrous education, a pedagogy for the beautiful
monsters we can become." - Michael Hardt, co-author of
Commonwealth "Our cultural fascinations with the
monstrous and its omnipresence in our contemporary Western
imaginings play center-stage in this provocative
exploration of a zoophilic exopedagogy. From the feral, to
the alien, to the faery, Tyson Lewis and Richard Kahn put
pressure on our affective comfort zones by asking us what
it means to love the monstrous amidst and within us. The
answer comes through their theoretically vast and
conceptually rich exploration of a radical democratic
pedagogy of the unrepresentable." - Davide Panagia,
Canada Research Chair in Cultural Studies, Trent
University, Co-Editor of Theory and Event, and author of
The Political Life of Sensation.
