|Abstract:||This paper looks into the pre-conceptual or unthought frameworks operating behind the desire for implanting certain subcutaneous technologies and the attendant paradoxes of the desire for the reduction of difference, excess, the remainder, etc. The study mainly focuses in on the cybernetic work of Prof. Kevin Warwick from the University of Reading Cybernetics Laboratory. The study looks at these from a predominantly deconstructive perspective (also drawing on Derrida, Bataille, Levinas, Heidegger and Uexküll). Questions of the animal-human divide are broached together with a critique of Haraway's use of proto-christian responsibility as something to heal that wound. This paper's aim is to uncover certain hidden assumptions of humanistic responsibility|
