Automatismen sind Techniken, Routinen und Praktiken, die sich einer bewussten und zentralen Steuerung entziehen und doch in medialen, kulturellen und sozialen Prozessen zur Entstehung und Verfestigung von Strukturen beitragen. Das Graduiertenkolleg "Automatismen" der Universität Paderborn hat entsprechende Mechanismen vor dem Hintergrund der Strukturentstehung und als Kulturtechniken zur Reduzierung von Komplexität untersucht. Der vorliegende Abschlussband der Schriftenreihe des Kollegs fragt danach, ob, und wenn ja, inwiefern Automatismen in künstlerischen, politischen und ökonomischen Prozessen auch zur Auflösung und Zersetzung von Strukturen beitragen können – etwa in regelhaft auftretenden Prozessen der Erosion, der Abnutzung im Gebrauch, des Formverlusts, des Verfalls oder der Dekomposition.

Digital Existence: Ontology, Ethics and Transcendence in Digital Culture advances debates on digital culture and digital religion in two complementary ways. First, by focalizing the themes ‘ontology,’ ‘ethics’ and ‘transcendence,’ it builds on insights from research on digital religion in order to reframe the field and pursue an existential media analysis that further pushes beyond the mandatory focus in mainstream media studies on the social, cultural, political and economic dimensions of digitalization. Second, the collection also implies a broadening of the scope of the debate in the field of media, religion and culture – and digital religion in particular – beyond ‘religion,’ to include the wider existential dimensions of digital media. It is the first volume on our digital existence in the budding field of existential media studies.

In dieser wirkmächtigen philosophisch-technologischen Untersuchung stellt sich Gilbert Simondon dem ressentimentgeladenen Ausschluss der technischen Objekte aus der menschlichen Kultur ebenso entgegen wie technokratischen Machbarkeitsvisionen der Herrschaft durch Automaten. Stattdessen plädiert er für die Anerkennung und Reflexion der Existenz eines Kollektivs aus Mensch, offenen technischen Maschinen und Natur. Sein Ansatz vereint die detaillierte Analyse der Funktionsweisen von Motoren, Elektronenröhren oder frühen Computern mit weitreichenden philosophischen Erwägungen. In Auseinandersetzung mit der traditionellen Auffassung von Form und Stoff, dem Evolutionsdenken, Gestalttheorie, Kybernetik, Informationstheorie und Fragen der Gouvernementalität charakterisiert er technisches Denken und technische Existenzweise als Etappe im Werdensprozess von Leben und Denken.

Few thinkers have been as influential upon current discussions and theoretical practices in the age of media archaeology, philosophy of technology, and digital humanities as the French thinker Gilbert Simondon. Simondon's prolific intellectual curiosity led his philosophical and scientific reflections to traverse a variety of areas of research, including philosophy, psychology, the beginnings of cybernetics, and the foundations of religion. For Simondon, the human/machine distinction is perhaps not a simple dichotomy. There is much we can learn from our technical objects, and while it has been said that humans have an alienating rapport with technical objects, Simondon takes up the task of a true thinker who sees the potential for humanity to uncover life-affirming modes of technical objects whereby we can discover potentiality for novel, healthful, and dis-alienating rapports with them. For Simondon, by way of studying its genesis, one must grant to the technical object the same ontological status as that of the aesthetic object or even a living being. His work thus opens up exciting new entry points into studying the human's rapport with its continually changing technical reality. This first complete English-language translation of Gilbert Simondon's groundbreaking and influential work finally presents to Anglophone readers one of the pinnacle works of France's most unique thinkers of technics.

"A genuine one-stop reference point for the many, many differing strands of cultural analysis. This isn't just one contender among many for the title of 'best multidisciplinary overview'; this is a true heavyweight." - Matt Hills, Cardiff University "An achievement and a delight - both compelling and useful." - Beverley Skeggs, Goldsmiths, University of London With the 'cultural turn', the concept of culture has assumed enormous importance in our understanding of the interrelations between social, political and economic structures, patterns of everyday interaction, and systems of meaning-making. In The SAGE Handbook of Cultural Analysis, the leading figures in their fields explore the implications of this paradigm shift. Part I looks at the major disciplines of knowledge in the humanities and social sciences, asking how they have been reshaped by the cultural turn and how they have elaborated distinctive new objects of knowledge. Parts II and III examine the questions arising from a practice of analysis in which the researcher is drawn reflexively into the object of study and in which methodological frameworks are rarely given in advance. Addressed to academics and advanced students in all fields of the social sciences and humanities, The SAGE Handbook of Cultural Analysis is at once a synthesis of advances in the field, with a comprehensive coverage of the scholarly literature, and a collection of original and provocative essays by some of the brightest intellectuals of our time.
