Mediale Anthropologie, Spiel und Anthropozentrismuskritik


As Foucault has argued persuasively, human sciences carry in themselves not only the danger of anthropologization, but, precisely because of their epistemic instability and hybridity, also the potential for its criticism. This criticism is all the more important in the current turn to the human being as living, sentient and affective being, which takes place under the sign of life- and brain-sciences. Thus, it serves as the starting point of the medial anthropology and its focus on the medium of the game that this paper presents.
