Call for Papers Inscriptions 4, n1: Artificial Life, Ethics and the Good Life


For our volume 4, n1, we seek essays that reflect on, interrogate, and bring new perspectives to the notion of artificial life and ethical living in general. Key questions include:

  • How must I compose myself in order to live a good, satisfying life?
  • What is the good life, and what values are relevant to us in our present time?
  • How has the figure of the subject been challenged by our technological order, and how may we begin to ethically reassess our present condition?

Vol. 3 No. 2 (2020): Power in a time of pandemic
``“Masks,” drawing, by Pat Fjeld © 2020

This open issue questions the relation between subject and power: what is the substance and appearance of the sovereign, what are the domains and limits of state power, and what are the effects of governance in the time of a health scare. Two short texts by Giorgio Agamben show how a religion of science became a tool to administer an exceptional governmentality under the recent pandemic.
