The First Last Man

Eileen M. Hunt is a Professor of Political Science at Notre Dame. She is the author or editor of ten books on topics ranging from tracing the place of the family in Enlightenment political thought to charting the legacies of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818) for children’s rights, bioethics, and AI ethics. Her latest book—The First Last Man—is the concluding volume in her trilogy on Shelley and political philosophy for Penn Press. It reclaims the existential meanings of Shelley’s postapocalyptic war and plague novel set in the late 21st century—The Last Man (1826)— for our own post-pandemic era of climate crisis, endless war, and other human-made disasters.
