“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

Alan Montroso on Queer Ecology

Medieval culture and philosophy is for some reason poignantly resonant with speculative realism. I believe this has to do with the beginnings of the tsunami that we call modernity. Ramus' separation of logic from rhetoric inaugurated one part of it. Correlationism set the seal on it.

So perhaps it's no accident. Alan Montrose's post on queer ecology continues the thinking.
