Preventing “the Age of Loneliness”: Conservation, Ecological Restoration, Adaptation and the Nonhuman
As part of the Manchester Centre for Political Theory (MANCEPT) Workshops 2018 at the University of Manchester, 10-12 September 2018.
In light of current sixth mass extinction crisis it has become apparent that if humanity does not drastically change its current path we will enter ‘the age of loneliness’ as recently stated by naturalist and biologist Edward O. Wilson (2016). For this workshop we invite environmental philosophers and environmental political theorists to discuss how such a dystopian future could be prevented by ecological restoration, biological conservation or adaptation to a world of global warming, large monocultures and degraded habitats.
