Thinking Nature

An Essay in Negative Ecology

First Edition

Sean J. McGrath

Published by Edinburgh University Press

New Perspectives in Ontology

  • Makes a compelling case for a new Anthropocenic humanism where humans have a special responsibility for nature
  • Offers a fresh perspective on environmental issues
  • Shows how religion is not only still relevant to the environmental discussion but it is essential to the rethinking of nature needed today
  • Analyses cutting edge concepts in ecology such as the technosphere--the notion of technology becoming a self-organising system
  • Argues for an anthropocenic defence of the traditional distinction between human and non-human life and culture
