    Abstract:
    Spanish Abstract: De la conjunción de 'Neuromante' y de 'Blade Runner', con un toque de ́Matrix ́, surgen el manga y serie de películas de animación 'Ghost in the Shell'. El dilema de 'Ghost in the Shell (2): Innocence' versa sobre la identidad personal: si es replicable, si es imitable, si consiste en signos, ¿dónde está la esencia de la humanidad? Reconocemos y exploramos allí ciertas inquietudes postestructuralistas y postmodernistas. ________________________________________________________________ English Abstract: The manga and anime series 'Ghost in the Shell' stems from the conjunction of 'Neuromancer' and 'Blade Runner', with a touch of 'The Matrix'.

This paper recognizes here and explores some post-structuralist and postmodernist anxieties. Note: Downloadable document is in Spanish.
