Item description for Artificial Humans: Manic Machines--Controlled Bodies by Rolf Aurich Elisabeth Bronfen...
These days it's not only science fiction that's filled with cyborgsUevery aspect of popular culture, contemporary critical theory and literature, and even our real lives are everywhere penetrated by androids, alien creatures, virtual celebrities, and other simulacura. A collection of essays on the figure of the cyborg in contemporary film and culture, Artificial Humans examines such classics of the genre as Frankenstein, Bladerunner, Robocop, the Alien series, and the two Terminator films, and also touches on issues of artificial intelligence and virtual reality. With plenty of film stills and behind-the-scenes commentary from filmmakers like James Cameron and Ridley Scott, Artificial Humans combines the qualities of a film book, a cultural studies text, and a work of science fiction.
