Building upon Rachel’s posthuman approach to power (Chapter 8), this chapter further situates her argument through a series of dialogues with her co-authors. The chapter begins with a discussion of Marxism and Neo-Marxism in archaeology, focusing specifically on evolutionary thinking, dialectics, praxis, and how each of these compares with posthumanist and new materialist approaches. The authors consider the relationship between posthumanism and political action, asking if posthumanism necessitates an apolitical orientation to the world. Finally, the authors consider the benefits of moving beyond arguments for agency (human, object, or otherwise) to broader considerations of affect.
