Why is everything we think we know about ecology wrong? Is there really
any difference between 'humans' and 'nature'? Does this mean we even have
a future? Don't care about ecology? This book is for you. Timothy
Morton, who has been called 'Our most popular guide to the new epoch'
(Guardian), sets out to show us that whether we know it or not, we
already have the capacity and the will to change the way we understand
the place of humans in the world, and our very understanding of the term
'ecology'. A cross-disciplinarian who has collaborated with everyone
from Bjoerk to Hans Ulrich Obrist, Morton is also a member of the
object-oriented philosophy movement, a group of forward-looking thinkers
who are grappling with modern-day notions of subjectivity and
objectivity, while also offering fascinating new understandings of
Heidegger and Kant.
Calling the volume a book containing 'no ecological facts', Morton confronts the 'information dump' fatigue of the digital age, and offers an invigorated approach to creating a liveable future.
