Extinction Studies : Stories of Time, Death, and Generations Paperback
Edited by Matthew Chrulew, Deborah Bird Rose, Thom van Dooren
Extinction Studies focuses on the entangled ecological and social dimensions of extinction, exploring the ways in which extinction catastrophically interrupts life-giving processes of time, death, and generations.
The volume opens up important philosophical questions about our place in, and obligations to, a more-than-human world.
Drawing on fieldwork, philosophy, literature, history, and a range of other perspectives, each of the chapters in this book tells a unique extinction story that explores what extinction is, what it means, why it matters-and to whom.
