摘要: 
本論文主旨乃分析葛瑞格‧貝爾小說《斜線》中,當科技與人類交集時可能會產生的不同人類主體。貝爾在《斜線》中創造了一個各項人類生活都與科技與符碼有緊密關聯的烏托邦世界。因為科技的帶來的利益,人類生活在一個相當不同於以往的科技社會。但是,科技不僅是帶給人類社會利益,人類與科技的衝突也隨之而來。在小說中,貝爾提供了讀者一個警告,這樣的未來是被科技,特別是科技內的電腦符碼所主導的。因此,本論文旨在細膩的分析《斜線》中,當人類遇到科技帶來的優缺點中,去尋找人類對於科技不同的可能反應與態度,也因為這些不管是接受還是反對的態度而形成不同的人類主體。文中,這些主體的形成會由後現代觀點的懷舊分裂與生命政治中分子化控制的概念來討論。此外,因為身體具有混雜性與可塑性,本文提出身體是為解決在科技與人類互動產生的相關問題。最後,也因為對於身體的重視,新的後人類主體誕生。這樣有潛力的後人類主體也更能適應在科技與人類互動頻繁的複雜社會之下。

This thesis aims to analyze the possibility of human subjects that appear when technology and humankind confront each other in Greg Bear’s Slant. Bear illustrates a utopian world where every livelihood relates to technology and binary codes. With the aid of technology, human beings live in a different world from the previous one. Not only the benefits but also the conflicts are caused by technology. When technology, especially the binary codes of computer, dominates the world, Bear offers a warning to human beings in the novel. Therefore, the purpose of this thesis is to find the possible reactions and attitudes toward fresh technology by analyzing the novel. Because of the different attitudes of rejection or acceptation, the human subjects are multiple. Not only the ideas of the nostalgia and the schizophrenia of postmodernism but also the concept of molecular-control of biopolitics construct these different human subjects. In addition, the body acts as the antidote to solve the problems appearing in the age of techno-human interaction. By the hybrid and plastic characteristics of the body, new and potential human subject appears, namely, the posthuman subject. This posthuman subject is more suitable to confront the perplexing world when technology and humankinds have a profound and intricate interaction.
