The recent rise in the exploration of the concept of entering a different geologic age, the Anthropocene, is provoking interesting dialogue across the web—a dialogue that explores the multivalent conceptions that we have of our relationship with the natural world. This conversation is exciting, long overdue, and hopefully it’s just the beginning of a realignment of some of our deepest beliefs and assumptions about our entitlement as the dominant species on Earth.

Here is a link to an article in GDC Interiors Journal with a contribution by Synergetic Press author Christian Schwägerl that provides an accessible, yet in-depth analysis of the major concepts involved and their philosophical underpinnings.
