About this item

The Anthropocene is a potentially catastrophic age and demands new ways of thinking about relations between humans and the nonhuman world. This book explores how responses to environmental challenges are hampered by a grief for a pristine and certain past, rather than considering the scale of the necessary socioeconomic change for a 'future' world. Conceptualisations of human-nature relations must recognise both human power and its embeddedness within material relations. As centralised intergovernmental solutions regarding climate change appear insufficient, intellectual resources can be derived from localised understandings and practice to consider capacity and vulnerability in new ways.
