A Genealogy of the Cyborgothic imagines a new literary genre emerging from gothic literature and science fiction that will help to envision a cyborg-friendly, non-anthropocentric posthuman society. Dongshin Yi introduces mothering as an aesthetic and ethical practice that can enable a posthumanist relationship between human and non-human beings as he examines novels like The Mysteries of Udolpho and Arrowsmith alongside philosophical and critical works by Edmund Burke, William James, and others.The posthuman does not really mean the end of humanity. ... in Terminator II: Judgment Day (1991), Andrew Martin in Bicentennial Man (1999), and Data in Star Trek: Nemesis (2002), he asks why there is this suicidal trend in cyborgs.
