Demons are beginning to materialize without.
Bostrom: The portrait he paints is an ideal, to which transhumanism aspires, with the current state of science, however, not immediately achievable.
The cult of perfection, though, that it epitomizes, finds its expression in the modern culture, particularly in young adult fiction.
It has been pointed out that the immensely popular Twilight series , under the guise 1 In this article, I do not wish to use transhumanism and posthumanism interchangeably, although their areas of interest largely overlap. Birnbacher: 95 In the following pages, posthumanism will be understood as an umbrella term for many concepts that arise in connection with the technological and scientific advancements e. It entails the general question of what it means to be human as posed by Francis Fukuyama in his seminal Our Posthuman Future, More: 21, Waters: 50 of gothic fantasy of a vegetarian vampire, sells this particular philosophy, which emerges from an almost obsessive focus on human health and ability enhancement, together with the pursuit of immortality, that characterizes the present-day developed societies.
Cherjovsky The novels targeted at young audiences undertake serious considerations of the current issues, like government surveillance The Hunger Games, , social control Divergent, , bioengineering Maximum Ride, , etc.
Among these, a unique place is held by an eight-volume bestselling cycle, Artemis Fowl. It was written in the years by an Irish author Eoin Colfer In contradistinction to the usually neo-Victorian, dystopic, cyber- or steampunk conventions adopted by the mainstream juvenile literature, he attempted an unlikely marriage of a folk tale with science fiction. He reworks Irish leprechauns, i. To protect their secrets, they hide in underground cities of Haven and Atlantis, closely monitoring every move of men on the surface.
Their world, together with their secrets, however, is threatened with being exposed by a twelve-year-old child prodigy, Artemis Fowl. Through kidnapping, extortion, deception and theft, one by one he obtains fairy secrets, growing in the process beyond — even extraordinary — human being.
What naturally could develop into a coming-of-age cycle, swerves into the direction of a transformation, calling into question human nature and individual identity in the age of the morphological freedom 2, mind uploads, bioengineering and hybronauts3.
Necessarily, then, it inscribes itself very well in the posthumanistic debate about the validity of the experiments on the human body, the boundaries of the natural, and the effects of the above on the future of humanity. In the following parts of this article I wish to discuss the elements of the cycle that are specifically expressive of posthuman questions.
To this end, I would like to focus on three major areas that the books foreground. More and Vita-More: 93 3 According to Laura Beloff, individuals enmeshed in one network with their environment, with the help of wearable technological enhancements. In the case of cyborgization, we talk about implants e. Beloff: , Hayles: , More and Vita-More: morphological freedom, advocated by the proponents of transhumanism.
This part of the analysis will address the intrusion of modern science and technology into the human body, and their consequences for individual identity.
The second area concerns the search for immortality, tied to the dissociation of consciousness and the body, the concept of an upload and the problem of gender. In the third part focus would be put on the psychological makeup of the posthuman, with particular attention to the protean multiplex personality.
As a result, it will be seen how juvenile fiction responds to the concerns of the Age of Technology. Logically, the prosthesis should be customized and answer particular needs, and it can be upgraded together with the appearance of technological novelties.
In fact, in such a view, gender — understood as determined by physical features of a human, becomes quite irrelevant. The human body would change with the changes in the identity, as it is expressive of the particular goals, targeted by the mind. On one hand, the author seems to uphold the opinion that the body should not be tampered with.
Numerous protective measures in the book are based on the physical coding: retina scan, voice recognition, DNA swabs, etc. The finger is later reattached, but the action is seen as reprievable.
A prominent example of those who went too far in their quest for transhuman perfection are Briar Cudgeon, an LEP officer, and Opal Koboi, a genius pixie inventor.
Cudgeon, embittered by professional conflict, sought the cognitive enhancement through the use of drugs. Cudgeon was left with a forehead like melted tar, plus a droopy eye.
Ugly and demoted, not a great combination. She has her pointy ears operated upon to give them human shape. What is more, she implants in her brain a human pituitary gland to provoke the secretion of the growth hormone. Colfer She even goes as far as extracting substances from various animals to enhance her magic.
Colfer a: , All these attempts in the end cost her her sanity Colfer 36 and her magic powers, which is especially well visible in the fourth book of the cycle, Opal Deception Colfer On the other hand, the changes in identity must necessarily be reflected in the alterations of at least some parts of the body. Colfer b: Artemis himself, as he grows from a calculating rationalist to a globally- responsible, empathic man, earns a few body modifications.
For instance, in The Lost Colony, where Artemis and his friend Holly Short of the LEP travel through a time-tunnel, first his fingers are switched, then he swaps an eye with Holly, and finally he steals some of the fairy magic, which grants him limited healing and regeneration powers. He also gains three years during the travel: in his own time he has to pose as a seventeen-year-old.
Colfer Consequently, it would seem that some kind of enhancement would be necessary, when passing to the posthuman stage. She loved flying, but not enough to have an LEP surgeon sew a few implants into her cerebellum.
Colfer a: 25 It has to be underlined that the powers that are usually attributed to the fairy folk are here mostly a result of advanced technology. Thus, Holly can fly thanks to the attached wings and can make herself invisible using cam foil. Colfer does promote the vision of a posthuman being as at least hybronautic, if not cyborgized. The characters in the novels are often fitted with detachable devices, like the body sensors, an iris cam, eyeglasses with anti-shield filter or a gun in a prosthetic finger, but it does not change who they are.
From the presentation of Mulch Diggums, a kleptomaniac dwarf, it is clear that mechanization of the body may be sometimes desirable e. However, in dwarves this mechanization appeared as a result of natural evolution and it is an integral part of their bodies.
Perhaps the ultimate tampering with the body as an image of self would be cloning. Even in the fairy world, creating a double through genetic engineering is imperfect and allows only for the construction of a soulless shell, which vital functions have to be assisted and maintained. Colfer However, when he inhabited the cloned body, it turned out that he lost his memories. Since they were explicitly stated to form his identity Colfer b: , Colfer , it can be concluded that such a modification would necessarily entail at least a partial loss of identity, and should not be sought.
Encountering such an extensive picture of the malleability of the physical sphere in juvenile fiction, rather than only hard speculative fiction, shows the degree to which the phenomenon has permeated our consciousness. Such a view entails further consequences: although personal identity remains under the influence of the body, in common opinion the latter has ceased to define such basic elements of psychological frame as gender.
The choice of fifty one gender options offered nowadays by Facebook Hebernick and Baldwin, is only a part of the phenomenon. It signals a necessary transcendence of any — also gender — limitations, in the search of the wholeness of experience. The perfect harmony, the legacy of Enlightenment thought, resurfaces nowadays as homeostasis, which in the posthuman world involves also the equilibrium between yin and yang.
Hughes: , Vita-More: By far the best example of androgyny in the books is Artemis himself. His intriguing name draws attention from the start, as it clearly evokes the female goddess of wisdom from the Greek mythology. The boy tries to explain that he inherited the name after his father, and that it puts him in the position of a hunter. Colfer b: However, this explanation is not very convincing. Colfer Attaining the status of a mythical hero — if not a god — Artemis is able to retain the integrity of self even in separation from the body.
During his time travels he resists disintegration of his identity, returning with only minor changes. As could be seen from the above discussion, body enhancement may result in the development of dangerous psychosis Opal, Cudgeon. When Butler in The Eternity Code wakes up from his cryogenic sleep, he finds himself fifteen years older and with implants in his chest prominently Kevlar.
Colfer However, it is not only about bodily changes. The transformation in connection with embracing the posthumanist notions, and the conscious search for self upgrade, is invariably tied to psychological disturbances.
Now I think I know too much. This new knowledge, these compulsions are taking me over. The beginnings of a personality split and the resulting unease are an important part of the narrative beginning with The Arctic Incident. Though he was human, the fairy rules of magic held a certain sway over him. He was forced to chew motion-sickness tablets before entering a dwelling uninvited, and when the moon was full Artemis could often be found in the library, listening to music at maximum volume to drown out the voices in his head.
The great commune of magical creatures. The fairies had powerful race memories and they surfaced like tidal wave of raw emotion, bringing migraines with them.
She is infected with Spelltropy, and later on possessed by Opal Koboi, both of which can result in her death. It turns out that human frame is not suited to containing fairy magic. Dypess of the Atlantis Brainology Clinic. Other symptoms include obsessive behavior, paranoia, delusions, and in extreme cases multiple personality disorder. Artemis, meanwhile, is imprisoned in his own mind.
Colfer b: Another instance of the disruption of self as a result of combining human and fairy is Opal Koboi. Starting from The Time Paradox, there are three versions of Opal in the Lower Elements: the actual Opal, imprisoned in Atlantis jail, her younger self, obsessed with domination over time, and Nopal — a clone at J.
In apocalyptical The Last Guardian, the actual Opal acts on the theory that the death of the younger self would generate an enormous amount of energy, comparable to a nuclear fissure. View 1 comment. What's weird is that this was the first of the series I'd unwittingly picked up from the library at a whim— only to devour it in one go and proceed to download all four preceding books the very next day. Eternally grateful to Artemis Fowl for being one of the major contributors to my bookworm evolution.

Enough said. So many in the approximately 2 years that Artemis has known them. If fae-exposing issues arise so often, how did they deal with them before Artemis, to whom they run asking for help every time?
The problem in this book wasn't even caused by him at all, unlike the previous ones. Holly quit the LEP at the end of the previous book, but is recruited at a very similar service at the beginnng of this book, so basically nothing changed even though her quiting the LEP was a big deal in the previous book.
Hey, all the AF books were written in a very simplitic, dare I say lazy writing style, but this one is the one where the plot got a bit lazy too.
I'm kind of attached to the characters now, so I'll finish the series, I want to know how it ends. But let me just say that I've already started the next book and it seems even worse than this one.
If you have read the other books in the series this is a great continuation of them.
Book: Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony
I think this book is good for many reasons. First of all, it is filled with humorous and witty comments, even in the most dire situations Eoin Colfer finds room to fit them. You will find yourself laughing outloud to yourself when reading. Another great thing about this book is that it takes you on and adventure and it starts off right away, there's no waiting "Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony" is a great book! Another great thing about this book is that it takes you on and adventure and it starts off right away, there's no waiting to get to the climax because the whole book is exciting.
I also love the characters in this book, you really feel as if you know them and they are each so differents and all very likeable. So if you are looking for a humorous and adventurous story, this would be a great one to check out. Dec 25, Nikki rated it liked it Shelves: Reading too many Eoin Colfer books too close together doesn't seem to help in appreciating them. There's something about the tone and such that just starts to get on my nerves after two or three of his books.
Still, Artemis Fowl is still fun, and while this book didn't contain many surprises, I quite liked the new characters, and I'm interested to see what happens in future.
Minerva should be interesting, and I hope Number One shows up again. And Doodah, maybe. Other than that, though, I don't ha Reading too many Eoin Colfer books too close together doesn't seem to help in appreciating them. Other than that, though, I don't have much to say.

The Artemis Fowl series continues to get more complex with each book. The time travel element is surely confusing to its younger readers. And now we have an aged Artemis with a stronger connection to Holly Short.
Can't wait to see their continuing adventures together. Jul 06, Connor rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved it! Mar 22, Kimberley doruyter rated it did not like it.

The storyline is nice; it flows well, and a ton of new characters of introduced, so instead of only the same original characters recycling the same sarcastic remarks, snide comments and sometimes really bad humor, there are more characters to distribute among! He did break down at the end, when Artemis naturally outsmarted him, but Minerva was pretty childish and bratty throughout the entire book.
For the child genius she is supposed to be, the child part is emphasized so much more. Billy Kong was a hilarious character - I loved how they messed with his mind.
It was different and kind of slightly evil of them, but he did literally ask for it. In Taiwan, the plot twist comes along: A Butler failed in his duty. And I think that was awesome. So Butler failing was awesome. And Artemis has to deal with things on his own sort of.. Overall, it was decent. I think I initially gave it 3 stars, but after re-reading decided it maybe deserved to go up a notch since it was better than I remembered.

Great, thought Holly. No matter what dimension you're in, there's a bigheaded male trying to take over the world. The evolution of Artemis and Holly's relationship is probably at its peak in this book as well. Not only are they able to view spoiler [read each other's thoughts even if only for a brief moment during the time surges hide spoiler ] but they trust each other so implicitly that it has become second nature. They only need to look at each other to know what the other is thinking or intends to do.
I mean, Holly went from threatening to frying Artemis's brains out to kissing him on the cheek. That's a pretty far cry from book one.
The addition of Minerva is probably as important. Not only does she give Artemis a run for his money in terms of brainpower, but she's a girl. This is the first time that Artemis is beginning to see the opposite sex in a different light, and not because they're a completely different species. He's attracted to her and that annoys him to no end since not only is it distracting, he finds that it doesn't really seem to bother him as much as it should.
Hint hint for the next book. I can understand why this book is the least well-liked or crucial to the overall story of the series, but in terms of character relationships and development, it's all in here and it's about as stuffed as it can get.
Dec 30, Karissa rated it it was amazing. The Artemis Fowl books have continued to be a great series to read. For some reason I always start reading these books with a bit of reluctance because they are, after all, kids books. A few pages into the book though I am always hooked again; this continues to be the case. In this book Artemis calculates that the time warped island that demons live on is slowly unraveling. He is attempting to prove his calculation by detaining a time warped demon.

Artemis Fowl : the lost colony
The book is action packed and non-stop intellectual fun from the beginning to the end. The new characters introduced are wonderful. Minerva is the perfect female counterpart to Artemis and No.
The whole gang is back and ready to deliver. Holly is in for a lot of action and Foaly has a whole new bag of tricks in his hands..
I mean hoofs. Artemis is taking his turn as a "good guy" seriously and his new outlook on life really endears him to the reader. The addition of Minerva as a possible love interest is very interesting. Finally Artemis has someone to laugh at quark jokes with. This is another fun book that further enhances the Artemis Fowl series.
I look forward to reading the next book in the series. While I very much love this series, I had found it difficult to finish this book when I read it.
I got half way through and just stopped, which is weird because this is my second favourite series. But I do feel that there was just a little too much going on for me, and a lot of new characters. And, on a personal side, I didn't at all enjoy Minerva. She didn't even grow on me like characters usually do. But there are some interesting developments that are key in book too and definitely worth the While I very much love this series, I had found it difficult to finish this book when I read it.
But there are some interesting developments that are key in book too and definitely worth the read. As always I loved this addition to the Artemis Fowl series but it wasn't as good as the previous books. Still a really great read, though! Nov 06, Juliet rated it it was amazing. Loved this one, and loved the ending! Fascinating turn of events. The Lost Colony might be one of my favorite Artemis Fowl books so far, even though I really like anti-hero Artemis from the first couple.
But what really got me was the ending, because it was just fantastic.
There was time travel, paradoxes, and magic, three things that I really love. Oct 17, Nico rated it really liked it. I really like this book because it has a lot of action and adventure which are two of my favorite genres in books.

The Eight Family of faerie kind. Artemis, Holly, Butler, and the rest of the gang are thrown into another wild ride to save the world- yet again- from a fairy related incident of mass proportions. On the other side of the story, we have Minerva and No1. The latter being our new favorite demon from the island of Hybras who ends up getting captured when he makes his way to Earth, and the former being the new up-and-coming child genius who captures him.
This might be my favorite book of the series so far in my reread. In this one, Artemis has pretty much become a good guy, finally. Its taken a few books, but Artemis has finally really started to learn from his mistakes and past behavior.
He even starts to lecture our new girl Minerva, who is two years his junior! I will now allow humans or fairies to die when I might have prevented it. Butler would not give up.

The story is just as lively and interesting but a little disturbing with Artemis's switching digits and gaining magical abilities. Initially I must say that this doesn't please me as it seems to break or at least bend several of the implied rules of fantasy, especially children's fantasy. However, this may change when the final book is released.
