“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Polygraph 22 on Ecology

A great new issue of the journal Polygraph (22, available on amazon), is now out, featuring me, Ben Woodard, Anthony Paul Smith, Imre Szeman, John Bellamy Foster, Kim Stanley Robinson, Kathy Rudy, Ariel Salleh, Slavoj Zizek and Michael Hardt (and many others). All this and a review of Graham Harman's Prince of Networks. The editor, Gerry Canavan, provides a useful summary here.
