This dissertation considers the long run convergence among gothic reports and
humanism within the age of posthumanism and proposes “cyborgothic” as a brand new literary
genre that heralds that destiny. The convergence into consideration is already in
progress in that an stumble upon among human and non-human regularly conjures up the
two fields, wondering the character of people and the remedy of such non-human
beings as cyborgs. Such wondering, frequently performed in the boundary of humanities,
persistently translates non-human beings as both representing or supporting human
shortcomings. hence, solutions are human-orientated or perhaps human-centered in
many instances, and “cyborgothic,” generated out of retrospective research into gothic
studies and potential formula of posthumanism, goals to provide varied, non-anthropocentric how you can view people and non-humans on equivalent phrases.

chapter proposes Marge Piercy’s He, She and Itas a comparable cyborgothic textual content, which attempts
to advance the way to recognize the presence of the cyborg—one that's instantly
aesthetical and ethical—so as to let people and cyborgs to narrate one another on
equal phrases. therefore, “cyborgothic” is being required as a literary try and current the
age of posthumanism that's now not anthropocentric.

Having deﬁned my task as such, I propose to assign new signiﬁcance to the nonrepresentational (rather than antirepresentational) elements of rhetoric, which have received scant attention by rhetoricians to date. Given my demonstration of the metaphysical afﬁnity between representation and human being, I plan to investigate the inﬂuence of rhetoric on the formation of subjectivity according to the differences obscured by the supposed identity, the essential ethos, of human being in its classical or humanist forms.
The ideal of the classical orator participates in such a project—a human “becoming God” by representing the truth of human being in speech, by personifying such Socratic ideals as reason, truth, and virtue. The meaning of human being in our heritage, therefore, is fundamentally metaphysical or, more precisely, onto-theological. The identity of human being, its essential truth, signiﬁes a capacity for acquiring objective knowledge of the relationship between sensible and intelligible phenomena, of the origin as well as the telos (or the purposeful fruition) of human endeavor.
The ideal circle of metaphysics is undone by this torsion, by this energy applied to the transcendence of a historical process that, ironically, produced the very possibility of such transcendence, the possibility of its own disavowal. This torsion creates a dilemma: either one tries to shatter the circle, to reject all notion of history as a meaningful process with an ideal beginning and end, or one attempts to escape from it, to transcend the inherent paradoxes of metaphysical thought altogether.
