    Art and Metabolic Force in Deep Time Environments.Monika Bakke - 2017 - Environmental Philosophy 14 (1):41-59.
    Contemporary art practices which take into consideration both bio­logical and geological perspectives on the environment offer an inspiring contribution to the growing geological awareness in the humanities. By drawing attention to the role of metabolic forces in evolution, including inorganic activity, artists enquire into the geological past and future of the earth and beyond. Their work suggests that in a time of environmental crisis, it is particularly important to design future metabolic networks for ourselves and non-human others aimed not only (...)

  3. An Unintended Race.Gan Elaine - 2017 - Environmental Philosophy 14 (1):61-81.
    Engineered for fast harvests and high yields through chemicals, miracle rice triggered a green revolution throughout Southeast Asia and one of the largest anthropogenic disturbances to the nitrogen cycle in the twentieth century. This article considers the green revolution as an event of more-than-human temporalities, an aleatory formation of vegetal, animal, chemical, and human coordinations that has become a world-changing conjuncture. I present the formation as an unintended race—that is, an interplay of differential speeds. I offer a countermodernist account of (...)

  4. Survival.Sabine Höhler - 2017 - Environmental Philosophy 14 (1):83-100.
    This paper explores examples of Mars fiction of “terraforming”—of creating Earth-like environments in space—against the background of the Earth’s environmental degradation and restoration. Visions of Mars settlement offered an escape route for a threatened humanity and a blueprint for the eco-technological recreation of the Earth’s environment. This paper aims to outline the Anthropocene as an epoch that not only compromised the Earth but also essentially transformed the understanding of Earthly life to a minimalist principle of survival through infinite metabolic conversions. (...)

  6. Endling, the Power of the Last in an Extinction-Prone World.Jørgensen Dolly - 2017 - Environmental Philosophy 14 (1):119-138.
    In April 1996, two men working at a convalescent center wrote a letter to the journal Nature proposing that a new word be adopted to designate a person who is the last in the lineage: endling. This had come up because of patients who were dying and thought of themselves as the last of their family line. The word was not picked up in medical circles. But, in 2001, when the National Museum of Australia opened its doors, it featured a (...)

  7. The Six Extinctions.Joseph Masco - 2017 - Environmental Philosophy 14 (1):11-40.
    This article examines the visualization strategies informing public understandings of planetary scale ecological crisis. Working with scientific visualizations as well as the Suicide Narcissus art exhibition, it interrogates the inherent problems in conveying extinction as a process and future potential. This essay ultimately considers the psychosocial tensions inherent in contemplating collective death.

  10. Narcissistic Attachments.Emily Thew - 2017 - Environmental Philosophy 14 (1):101-118.
    This essay examines the relationship between human and non­human animals in the context of de-extinction projects. Following van Dooren and Rose’s suggestion that de-extinction projects are reluctant to engage with mourning work, I argue that these scientific endeavours can be understood as inherently melancholic. In reading them as such, I focus on the concepts of identification and ambivalence central to Freud’s theorisation of melancholia, and argue that looking at these key ideas in relation to de-extinction reveals the way that notions (...)
