Radical Ecology, Sovereign Powers, and Saving the (Natural) World
This chapter talks about the ethical and political concern of radical ecology in saving the natural world, focusing on the anarchic aspects of ethics and politics, and the kinds of theoretical constellations that might help in releasing nature from political claims of human sovereignty into the flows of natural history. It analyzes Neil Evernden’s The Natural Alien, as a philosophical text that addresses the contemporary human condition from a radical ecological point of view. In The Natural Alien, Evernden regards the root of ecological problems to the treatment of the natural world, and presents a philosophical and ecological account of the emergence of the technological enframing of the world and its alienating effects.
