Human, All Too (Post)Human is the culmination of some extraordinary and necessary work produced over the last 20 years. . . . The authors argue convincingly that the recent theory emerging from neoliberalism obscures history, materiality, and class relations. * Science & Society * Human, All Too (Post)Human is an uncommon book; it is a philosophically insightful and erudite analysis of the contemporary situation with deep political commitment to social change. It is a piercing root critique of governing ideas and the social conditions that produce them at a time when critique itself has become the target of accommodationist thinkers such as Bruno Latour in order to sideline such un-assembling of the social. Written against the horizon of Marx's Critique of the Gotha Program, Human, All Too (Post)Human, breaks the silence on what has become unspeakable in contemporary cultural critique and argues not for freedom from humanism or post-humanism, which have haunted bourgeois thought, but for a future free from wage labor. -- Peter McLaren, Honorary Chair Professor and Director of the Center for Critical Studies, Northeast Normal University, China
