Holocene & Anthropcene
The bits and pieces of our worldly crisis amount to a crisis of the whole Earth. Opportunities of one geological epoch are ending as a challenging new one begins. To get beyond this new epoch while retaining a flourishing Earth and prospects for a future worthy of the whole Earth community, we must learn that our great questions converge. To leave past, present and future to experts is to mimic the linear logic that got us here. We must learn how all three time dimensions pose a single question: what does it mean to live ecologically in the living Earth?
Matthew C. Ally is chair of philosophy at Boro of Manhattan Community College, but he was supposed to be an ecologist.
