4pm Dark Ecology Reading Group

February 2 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Timothy Morton argues that one of the things that has been most damaged by modern society is thinking, and one of the most damaged ideas is that of Nature. Rather than seeing Nature as an object “over there,” Morton seeks to show the interconnectedness of things. In his recent book, Dark Ecology: For a Logic of Future Coexistence (2016), calls for us to give up the idea that “nature” is somehow “natural,” asking us to instead embrace the dark underbelly, and celebrate the “queerness” of nature. Through a close reading of the text, this group proposes to discuss these ideas of Nature, Man, and our damaged way of thinking. Download outline.
