Blog2: Human and Non-human
how we feel nonhuman liveness in post-human stage
What is nonhuman? Animal, plants, mountains, rivers, machines, environment, ecological things, technologies, etc.. And how we feel nonhuman liveness in post-human stage?
From Eastern philosophy, like Buddhism, it treats all of the sential and insential beings have Budda-nature and animism. Similarily with Western philosophy, Jane Bennett, Spinoza, Sulliven think nonhuman is animate and has unpredictable power that human can‘t controll compeletely. Same as in the three waves of system theory and cybernetics, highlighting the opnion of human and nonhuman are in the recursive system, we are the producer but also the product to be designed. And our knowledge of ourselves and the world is not absolutely objective and real, our own biological structure depends the way we see the world, in other words, our knowledge of the wolrd is emerged by recurrent of individual sensorimotor capacities (actions and perceptions), so our knowledge is not absolute objective and rational, but also empric, subjective and emotional.
Hence, it is not justify to rule the world order by human and negelact nonhuman, or treat nonhuman as an object, or put nonhuman in a/an subhiarachy/opposite position. All of these opnions doubt the duality between human and nonhuman, the absolute objective and rational knoelwdge we get, and prompt the importance of subjective experience and emtional relationship which should also be ways to construct our world.
