Looking at the Anthropecene


Looking at the Anthropecene

From Public Books: “Ecocritics in the humanities, philosophers, natural scientists, economists and geographers have devoted a great deal of attention to the question of climate change, its causes, and its consequences. In acknowledging such causes as industrialized agriculture they have achieved something like a consensus around the concept of the Anthropocene — a term coined to describe the period during which human beings became ‘geological agents.’ Many have also begun to argue that it is not humanity as such that is the primary engine of climate change, but rather historic modes of capital accumulation.”
