As a literary genre and a form of cultural aesthetic cyberpunk narratives depict dark visions of the future in which technology, society, and human existence merge. A major element of this setting is Artificial Intelligence (AI), which is often portrayed as a powerful, autonomous entity in cyberpunk universes. In cyberpunk genres, AI typically symbolizes both the zenith of human advancement and a looming existential danger for human beings. The dynamic between humans and AI in these narratives not only raises ethical dilemmas but also highlights the potential conflicts and challenges associated with the development of advanced AI technologies.

Humanity moves doggedly forward. We move in leaps, in fits, at times dragged, but we move forward all the same, sharp-stung by a tension our unique self-awareness gives us: the need to tear down and rebuild and the certainty to find it haunted by those same old ghosts. History reveals a constant cycle of destruction and renewal. Sometimes outside forces press change upon us: the hand of God scattering the nations at Babel or the devastation wrought by the Black Death in fourteenth-century Europe. Sometimes our own innovation kickstarts the change: the printing press, the Industrial Revolution, the iPhone.

There’s Jove’s “mythy mind” in “Sunday Morning,” Penelope’s meditative compositions in “The World as Meditation,” “Aeneas” bearing his father “from / The ruins of the past” in the uncollected “Tradition,” and a call-out to “Classical mythology” in general as “The greatest piece of fiction” toward the end of Adagia. Stevens invokes “Plato’s ghost” and “Aristotle’s skeleton” in “Less and Less Human, O Savage Spirit”; he proposes and describes a “platonic person” in “The Pure Good of Theory”; he points to Plato and cites Socrates throughout his essays and letters. We find him freely, knowingly referring to Callimachus, Democritus, Parmenides, Sappho, Xenophon; to Catullus, Cicero, Horace, Lucretius, Ovid.

Stigmatised identities: Alternative Sexualities in/out of Normative Representations

 

The concept of ‘stigma’, including the many perspectives on stigmatised identities and processes of stigmatisation, is a crucial tool to focus on alternative sexualities and their representation. The issue has been addressed in numerous disciplinary fields, with studies attempting to understand stigma both generally in terms of social dynamics (Goffman 1963 and 1969; Becker 1963; Jones et al. 1984), and in its specific relation to sexuality (Herek 1998; Evans 2002).
