Joanna Zylinska: minimal ethics for the Anthropocene

An interesting new book on Minimal Ethics for the Anthropocene from Open Humanities Press here. A related talk below by the author, Joanna Zylinksa:

Saskia Sassen on Expulsions: a category for our age

Charles Taylor on: Democracy, Diversity, Religion

Particularly relevant given the charged contexts of late:

Sandra Harding on Objectivity and Diversity: Tensions for Feminist Postcolonial Thought

The Shock of the Anthropocene: the Earth, history, and us

This is an interesting looking book, from anthro_r6_erichuVerso.

“Scientists tell us that the Earth has entered a new epoch: the Anthropocene. We are not facing simply an environmental crisis, but a geological revolution of human origin. In two centuries, our planet has tipped into a state unknown for millions of years. How did we get to this point?

Refuting the convenient view of a “human species” that upset the Earth system unaware of what it was doing, this book proposes a new account of modernity that shakes up many accepted ideas: on the supposedly recent date of “environmental awareness,” on previous challenges to industrialism, on the manufacture of consumerism and the energy “transition,” as well as on the role of the military in environmental destruction.

Through a dialogue between science and history, the authors draw an ecological balance sheet of a developmental model that has become unsustainable, and explore paths for living and acting politically in the Anthropocene.”
