What is ‘Dark Ecology’ and how are its approaches different to standard ecological views? Similar to ‘Deep Ecology’, this school of thought seeks to challenge anthropocentric both within and outside of our environmental thought. Seeking to decentre our human-focused ideas of instrumentality and utility, dark ecology invites us to question our status as human beings and our relation to the world.
Within this session, questions concerning man’s relation to technology, the planet, and himself will be raised, with a particular emphasis on some of the more ‘extreme’ answers proposed by certain individuals and groups within the Dark Ecology branch of Ecologism.
Before exploring these matters in depth, a brief overview of some of the core themes and thinkers of the general Ecologism strand of thought will be given, so don’t worry if you haven’t got much experience in this area!
