Humankind : Solidarity with Non-Human People, Paperback / softback Book

Humankind : Solidarity with Non-Human People Paperback / softback

Description

What is it that makes humans human? As science and technology challenge the boundaries between life and non-life, between organic and inorganic, this ancient question is more timely than ever.

Acclaimed Object-Oriented philosopher Timothy Morton invites us to consider this philosophical issue as eminently political.

In our relationship with non-humans, we decided the fate of our humanity.

Becoming human, claims Morton, actually means creating a network of kindness and solidarity with non-human beings, in the name of a broader understanding of reality that both includes and overcomes the notion of species.

Negotiating the politics of humanity is the first and crucial step to reclaim the upper scales of ecological coexistence, and not to let Monsanto and cryogenically suspended billionaires define them and own them.
