Agency at the Time of the Anthropocene

purple's picture

Main ideas:

1. We as the human race, not just a specific group of humans, are responsible for all the environmental change that has occured

2. We need to "shift our attention away from the domains of nature and society toward the common source of agency" (Latour 13)

3. There is no objectivity: "the very notion of objectivity has been totally subverted by the presence of of humans..." (Latour 3)
