Abstract

This article discusses Bond’s relationship with technology, arguing that it is not enough to focus on the various technological projects and technical objects/gadgets which surround the character – and which are made so much of in the paratexts and reception contexts of the films – but that it is essential to take into account Bond’s technical practice. Bond, then, is read as an embodiment of a form of Stieglerian prostheticism: a human being who produces the technological field and practises technics by way of being human.
