Cosmologies of the Anthropocene

Cosmologies of the Anthropocene

This book explores the misconception of nature in the West since the birth of modern philosophy and the devastating impact that this has had in practice. Drawing on recent anthropological work, it proposes a radical alternative cosmology to make sense of mind and matter, and to challenge present-day posthumanist critiques of the Anthropocene.
