Climate without Nature : A Critical Anthropology of the Anthropocene, Hardback Book


This book offers a critical reading of the Anthropocene that draws on archaeological, ecological, geological, and ethnographic evidence to argue that the concept reproduces the modernist binary between society and nature, and forecloses a more inclusive politics around climate change.

The authors challenge the divisions between humans as biological and geophysical agents that constitute the ontological foundations of the period.

Building on contemporary critiques of capitalism, they examine different conceptions of human-environment relationships derived from anthropology to engage with the pressing problem of global warming.
