Strangers, migrants and nomads are celebrated in our postmodern global of hybrids and cyborgs. yet we pay a value for this occasion of hybridity: the non-hybrid figures in our societies are neglected, rejected, silenced or exterminated. This ebook tells the tale of those non-hybrid figures Ð the anti-heroes of our pop culture.
The major instance of non-hybrids in an another way hybridized global is that of deep previous age. Hazan exhibits how we fervently distance ourselves from outdated age via grading and sequencing it into levels equivalent to ‘the 3rd age’, ‘the fourth age’ and so forth. getting older our bodies are manipulated via anti-aging options till it truly is now not attainable to do it anymore, at which element they turn into un-transformable and non-marketable items and for that reason commercially and socially invisible or masked. different examples are used to explain an analogous cultural good judgment of the non-hybrid: discomfort, the Holocaust, autism, fundamentalism and corporeal dying. at the face of it, those examples could seem to don't have anything in universal, yet all of them exemplify an analogous cultural good judgment of the non-hybrid and impress related reactions of feedback, terror, abhorrence and ethical indignation.
This hugely unique and iconoclastic ebook deals a clean critique of up to date Western tradition by means of targeting that that's perceived as its different Ð the non-hybrid in our midst, frequently rejected, overlooked or silenced and deemed to be short of globally doable correction.
