KROKER, Arthur




"Martin Heidegger is the theorist par excellance of the digital future," says Arthur Kroker in The Will to Technology & The Culture of Nihilism: Heidegger, Nietzche & Marx (UTP 2004). Hyper-nihilism. Hyper-Heidegger. Switching Flesh. Virtual Capitalism. Digital Sweat Shops. These are just some of the subjects that Kroker investigates for his critique of "the ethical crisis of contemporary technology." At publication, he was Canada Research Chair in Technology, Culture and Theory at the University of Victoria.

Critical Digital Studies (UTP, 2008) brings an entire arsenal digital-age subjects - MySpace, YouTube, blogging, mashups, RPGs - under investigation.
