Interpreting the Anthropocene: Hope and Anxiety at the End of Nature

27-28 June: Workshop by the Cluster of Excellence "The Formation of Normative Orders"

Veröffentlicht am: Dienstag, 25. Juni 2019, 11:18 Uhr (25-01)

The Anthropocene is the era of pervasive human impact on the planet. Atmospheric carbon dioxide and methane concentrations that exceed Holocene peak levels, techno-fossils frozen in Greenland ice sheets, and massive species extinction are all indications of planetary boundaries that have come under stress due to human industrial, commercial, and agricultural activity. Humanity’s relationship to its environment is changing. Lagging behind that change is serious reflection on how best to understand and direct it.
