Abstract

This article considers the convergence of 'natural' evolutions (a super-evolved consciousness ascribed to schizophrenia) and 'artificial' technologies (cloning, artificial intelligence, genetic modification) that become increasingly inseparable in what Maurice Dantec sees as the twenty-first century's generalised theatre of war. Both threaten to undermine the fundamental concepts of individual identity upon which our understanding of the human is premised and, in doing so, challenge the very basis of literature, thereby necessitating a reinscription of self-identical nature by other means.
