Subject: a non-human perspective
Allow me to recommend two books that aim to provide a non-human
perspective on the world with specific emphasis on the social sciences:
Petr Gibas, KarolÃna PauknerovÃ¡, Marco Stella et al., Non-Humans in
Social Science: Animals, Spaces, Things. Cerveny Kostelec, Czech
Republic: Pauvel Mervart, 2011.
KarolÃna PauknerovÃ¡, Marco Stella, Petr Gibas et al., Non-Humans in
Social Science: Ontologies, Theories and Case Studies. Cerveny Kostelec,
Czech Republic: Pauvel Mervart, 2014.
These are of interest to me because they help reorientate arguments
about what it would (will) be like when a conversation with an
artificially intelligent entity becomes possible.
