BEING-GLOBAL IN THE POST-ONTOLOGICAL AGE: ANTHRO-ALGORITHMIC PERSPECTIVES
You have the best ontology book of 2022 by Mark Jarzombek that provides fascinating facts and insight into the digital world and what draws humans to it. You can find the Digital Stockholm Syndrome In The Post-Ontological Age among the other unputdownable Kindle Amazon books.
An Un-Put-Down-able Read about Post-Ontological Era
Jarzombek argues in his digital ontology book Digital Stockholm Syndrome in the Post-Ontological Age that given the intensive interactions, whether known or unknown, between humans and algorithms, there is no longer any theoretical assurance about where to begin the conversation about Life. He stated that paranoia, formerly regarded as an illness, is now the new normal connecting humans within data capitalism’s networks. His ontology book linked post-ontology to the creation of the globally scaled informatics industrial complex in the recent decade.
Jarzombek contrasted post-ontology with post-humanity. Despite being connected, post-ontology is less concerned with interspecies realities. Instead, in the post-ontological world, the classic boundary between human and inhuman dissolves, resulting in what he refers to as the “(in) human” – a term that can only be written, as speaking places us back within the structure of dualism. He asserted that in digital ontology, we could no longer use language and its dualisms to escape our darker selves.
Unravel The Intricacies of the Post-Ontological World in This Riveting Ontology Book
It is difficult to discuss who we are in the age of digital ontology. Everyone and their grandmother have an opinion. However, bringing in data gurus is a basic error. The data optimist era has come to an end. Yet, like flies on sticky paper, we are locked in self-creation processes. To make sense of the current situation, we must consider how we arrived at this point in time. This must be reinforced, of course, by the question of how we examine the present. Even yet, it begs the more difficult question: how do we talk from within the subject position of the present?
Digital Stockholm Syndrome in the Post-Ontological Age by Mark Jarzombek is a thought-provoking digital ontology book that discusses the relationship between the Human and the Technological and how it is moving in a labyrinthine manner. The story of digital ontology is not about technology or capitalism but about dependence structures. In place of the old Three Rules of Robotics, Mark offers three new laws to define the nature of this reliance. Because the algorithmic world is a heat-producing-seeking universe that produces, captures, and exploits the life pulse of data, these principles are thermodynamic.
The reader will certainly find this interesting ontology book that explores the twentieth and twenty-first centuries as they are subject to the manipulation and impacts of computers, algorithmic modelling, data capitalism, multinational corporations, Big-data, and digital ontology.
Exploring The Pleasure Of Staying With Our Digital Kidnappers
You might have read many books about Stockholm syndrome. However, rarely would you have read a book that explains to you your attachment to your prisoner. Mark, in his dark psychology book, sheds light on the reasons and other complexities of this malicious pleasure that you draw from the digital world.
His book tackles the urgency of issues that make visible the strategic ways in which the very layer of what used to make us human is now subsumed, and news related to net neutrality or information mismanagements alludes to the importance of this discussion.
About The Author
A history professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Mark Jarzombek, has authored several books. Mark has written on a wide range of subjects that, include the area of digital philosophy. Mark is also a co-founder of the Office of (Un)certainty Research, a design practice dedicated to rethinking architecture in terms of the emergent scientific, social and political parameters of the 21st century.
In his book, he develops an engaging exploration of the 20th and 21st centuries as subject to the manipulation and effects of computation, algorithmic modeling, data capitalism, multinational corporations, Big-data, and global post-ontology that you will enjoy reading.
About The Book
We all irrefutably live in the Digital Age. Man’s transition into the Modern Age and the invention of various types of machines and technology was a transition that could be seen and experienced. However, the transition into the Digital Age is more insidious.In this ontology book, Mark Jarzombek presents the timeline of this gradual adaptation and how it made the norm. The realm of algorithms is almost completely invisible to the common person, yet it is hard to avoid its menacing clutch. It is everywhere. With no outside, assessing the traditional relationship between the Human and the Technological is moving in a labyrinthine.One of the aptest books about Stockholm syndrome, Digital Stockholm Syndrome In The Post-Ontological Age, argues that the study of humans calls for a new type of science that talks about algorithmic ontology in which the human is being pushed to its corporeal /sensate /moral /physical /psychological/political/
sexual/bacteriological/global limits.In a way, we are now more Human than ever before, and yet what we mean by Human is becoming increasingly illusive since the glue that holds all this together is a finely constructed type of hallucinogenic paranoia that speaks to us at different registers of reality.The major corporations, governments, and hackers have to be seen as data addicts and humans as the object of this addiction. In this sense, the story is not about technology and capitalism but about systems of dependency. In contrast to the outdated Three Laws of Robotics, Mark proposes an alternative three laws as a way to describe the nature of this dependency. These laws are thermodynamic in nature since the algorithmic world is a heat-producing-seeking world that produces, captures, and exploits the life pulse of data.
About The Book
THE DATA-HUMAN: WHO ARE WE?
The book – a companion to Jarzombek’s book on ontology, Digital Stockholm Syndrome in the Post-Ontological Age (University of Minnesota Press) – looks at a wide range of advertisements, scientific papers, journals, political events and ransomware histories to produce a visual panorama interspersed with graphs and questions that allows for a more robust conversation about the digitally-modified, digitally-enhanced, digitally-polluted human.

The age-old question of ‘who are we’ as humans is now clouded by the fact that we are all data humans. How exactly that ‘data’ manifests itself in our regular lives is completely hidden, yet it is, one can say, everywhere, engaging itself at scales that reach from the global to the acteriological.This book on digital philosophy, divided along a set of vectors – Commercial, Games, Mining, Hardware, Pop Culture, Military, Nasty Things, and Self – explores in visual terms the escalations over the last decades that define our current situation.The ontology book introduces advertisements, legal documents, technical developments, and imaginaries of various sorts to flesh out the story. It represents the ‘archive’ for the book Digital Stockholm Syndrome in the Post-Ontological Age (University of Minnesota Press, 2016).
