  • Timothy Morton argues that ecological awareness in the present Anthropocene era takes the form of a strange loop or Mbius strip, twisted to have only one side Deckard travels this oedipal path in Blade Runner 1982 when he learns that he might be the enemy he has been ordered to pursue Ecological awareness takes this shape because ecological phenomena have a loop form tTimothy Morton argues that ecological awareness in the present Anthropocene era takes the form of a strange loop or Mbius strip, twisted to have only one side Deckard travels this oedipal path in Blade Runner 1982 when he learns that he might be the enemy he has been ordered to pursue Ecological awareness takes this shape because ecological phenomena have a loop form that is also fundamental to the structure of how things are.The logistics of agricultural society resulted in global warming and hardwired dangerous ideas about life forms into the human mind Dark ecology puts us in an uncanny position of radical self knowledge, illuminating our place in the biosphere and our belonging to a species in a sense that is far less obvious than we like to think Morton explores the logical foundations of the ecological crisis, which is suffused with the melancholy and negativity of coexistence yet evolving, as we explore its loop form, into something playful, anarchic, and comedic His work is a skilled fusion of humanities and scientific scholarship, incorporating the theories and findings of philosophy, anthropology, literature, ecology, biology, and physics Morton hopes to reestablish our ties to nonhuman beings and to help us rediscover the playfulness and joy that can brighten the dark, strange loop we traverse.

    One thought on “Dark Ecology: For a Logic of Future Coexistence”

    1. I feel like liking or hating this book is a matter of taste i actually don t hate it so much as i wish Morton would settle the fuck down and sometimes cash out ideas directly while spending less time explaining OOO and hyperobject theory as much as i appreciated that he is writing fairly accessibly about difficult topics Mostly, I guess and this is the nihilist in me, this feels like a less fang y and updated theoretical version of Against Leviathan Against His Story and yet it also has a less [...]

    2. Morton writes here with a distinct voice at a tempo and volume that suggests he s consumed far too much coffee It s comparable to a musical act I love that he cited here, Orbital.The book is crammed full of thoughts, concepts, juxtapositions, threads, samples, riffs, loops Loops is clearly deliberate, as are threads.One of those very contemporary books that swoops from the heights of Plato Aristotle down through P.K Dick and O.E.Butler and blockbuster cinema, back up to Heidegger, Adorno, Irigar [...]

    3. A challenging book to read and assimilate New terms, new ideas that are really old ideas being brought to light , and a style of writing that is truly aesthetic Morton explores the philosophy of the current ecological paradigm and how we got to where we are He also investigates where we need to go from here He explains how current environmentalism is missing the mark, totally, because it s based on the thinking of the old paradigm We need a new way of speaking about the web of life and its inter [...]

    4. At its best this work of ecocritical theory sends the mind racing almost as quickly and feverishly as that of its author, spinning off to fresh avenues of thought and approaches to thinking through our disastrous ecological moment At its worst the reader or at least this one struggles through page after page, hoping for a moment of clarity that would make the journey worth it But one has to accept Morton on his own terms, and this book did enlighten me on a number of issues and approaches and I [...]

    5. while the book is extremely enjoyable to read, I think the author likes to generate new ideas than teasing out the obvious errors in his playful judgment

    6. Recently finished a brief academic review of this for The Kelvingrove Review Will link to it when it comes out This is a very difficult work because Morton is trying to break out of dominant modes of logic especially the Law of Noncontradiction , so you can imagine Yet it s also a scintillating read, full of vertiginous ideas and images, swallowing up the human in hyperobject upon hyperobject Hyperobject is Morton s term for something so gigantic in time and space that you can t see it all at on [...]

    7. Tim s reading of Sophocles at the start of The Second Thread shimmers brilliantly The page where he continues to scale out the loops of massive shifts within which Anthropocene is one will melt your mind in a good way that liquefies its plastic rigidity.I would recommend Dark Ecology to those who ve read some of his work already rather than as a starting point If you re looking for the starting book I say The Ecological Thought.

    8. Morton s latest book has moments of deep insights and moments where I feel he s mostly spinning his wheels What I admire most is his writing style fresher and bolder than most academics.

    9. I rarely write reviews, but THIS book is really fantastic and thought provoking It serves as a beacon of inspiration for me during undergrad years, and has also nourished additional reflection in MA and PhD studies And, of course, above and beyond the walls of academics.
