Dr. Dennis M. Weiss

Professor of Philosophy

York College of Pennsylvania


I am Professor of Philosophy in the English and Humanities Department of York College of Pennsylvania. I received my B.A. in Philosophy from Emory University and my Ph.D. in Philosophy from The University of Texas at Austin. I am former chair of the English and Humanities Department, Academic Senate President, and currently serve as the Assistant Director of General Education for First-Year Seminars.


My research interests span the intersection of philosophical anthropology, philosophy of technology, and popular culture. I have edited or co-edited two volumes, Interpreting Man (Davies, 2003) and Design, Mediation, and the Posthuman (Lexington 2014). I've published a variety of journal articles on philosophical anthropology, philosophy of technology, science fiction, and the posthuman.

I am currently working on two projects. The first, Being Human in a Digital Age, explores the resources philosophical anthropology offers for rethinking the posthuman in a technological age. The second examines the current state of television and televisual visions of the posthuman. I also host the film series PDF at Zoetropolis Cinema Stillhouse
