The Task of Philosophy in the Anthropocene: Axial Echoes in Global Space

London: Rowman & Littlefield International (2018)

Abstract

In its early modern form, philosophy gave a decisive impetus to the science and technology that have transformed the planet and brought on the so-called Anthropocene. Can philosophy now help us understand this new age and act within it? The contributors to this volume take a broad historical view as they reflect on the responsibilities and possibilities for philosophy today.
