Industrialism and the fragmentation of temporal structure

Environmental Ethics 26 (2):135-153 (2004)
Industrialism’s assimilation of the natural world has developed over the centuries through complex hierarchies of effects involving ecological, cultural, and psychological dimensions. One of the consequences of this assimilation is the fragmentation of the temporal structure of the world and its replacement by a short-term logic that also infects human subjectivity. Because of this fragmentation, the healing of the natural world cannot be realized either simply or directly, and effective action requires us to locate our immediate objectives within a recovered longerterm vision of a healthy natural world
