Summary: " Body Drift is an elegiac, lyrical, and virtuosic engagement with the three most influential feminist theorists of body drift in which Arthur Kroker emerges a resounding and passionate argument for an ethics of responsibility that is able to manage the clashing perspectives of our 'dark times'. Kroker artfully matches the trilogy of Judith Butler's postmodernism, Katherine Hayles' posthumanism, and Donna Haraway's companionism against the modernist triad of Heidegger's bad conscience, Marx's historical materialism and Neitzsche's nihilism to provide essential and enabling reading that provides a deep, coherent and understanding of the contemporary body in the technological age." -Sara Diamond, OCAD University.

As exemplary representatives of a form of critical feminism, the writings of Judith Butler, Katherine Hayles, and Donna Haraway offer entry into the great crises of contemporary society, politics, and culture. Butler leads readers to rethink the boundaries of the human in a time of perpetual war. Hayles turns herself into a ?writing machine? in order to find a dwelling place for the digital humanities within the austere landscape of the culture of the code. Haraway is the one contemporary thinker to have begun the necessary ethical project of creating a new language of potential reconciliation among previously warring species.
According to Arthur Kroker, the postmodernism of Judith Butler, the posthumanism of Katherine Hayles, and the companionism of Donna Haraway are possible pathways to the posthuman future that is captured by the specter of body drift. Body drift refers to the fact that individuals no longer inhabit a body, in any meaningful sense of the term, but rather occupy a multiplicity of bodies: gendered, sexualized, laboring, disciplined, imagined, and technologically augmented.
Body drift is constituted by the blast of information culture envisioned by artists, communicated by social networking, and signified by its signs. It is lived daily by remixing, resplicing, and redesigning the codes: codes of gender, sexuality, class, ideology, and identity. The writings of Butler, Hayles, and Haraway, Kroker reveals, provide the critical vocabulary and political context for understanding the deep complexities of body drift and challenging the current emphasis on the material body.
