Text topic: (Lack Of) Culture
Text author: Биљана Ђоровић
In the work “Cybernetic Eugenics: Culture in the Bermuda Triangle and the Disappearance of Man” we identify strategic concepts and theoretical directions and analysis of culture in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century, authored by Paul Virilio, a cultural theorist and phenomenologist, whose thought is based in physics, philosophy, politics and urban planning. Paul Virilio’s analysis is focused on mutual interweaving and taking human’s ontology that takes place in the triangle of war - speed - the means of representation, such as machines of perception and logistics of perception. Virilio’s project is not, however, aimed only at identification of the impact of internal logic of individual technologies or technological phenomena on culture, but also penetrates into broad implicit impact that this technology has on the collective perception of space and time, where each new technological device has affected the discipline and colonization of the human subject, allowing establishment of the ‘globalitarian’ power which, supported by science without conscience and bio-technological extremism, shatters and breaks down the very foundations of humanity.
