Preview: /A Reply to: Randall Auxier, “Cassirer: The Coming of a New Humanism”/ Randall Auxier delivered a paper at the Cassirer conference (published in this issue of Eidos) in which he advanced what he calls “new humanism.” To add to the discussion initiated by Auxier, in this paper I will critique (and thereby praise) posthumanism for its inability to move past the human. The gift which posthumanism gives us is clarifications on, and not radically new modes of, subjectivity. Posthumanists ask: “What happens if we retake those things which were banished by humanism and return them to theoretical considerations of ourselves as human?” My thesis is that posthumanism and new humanism are much closer than posthumanists think.
