“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

Harman on Morton

Graham and I both happen to be writing for the same architecture journal and he has chosen to discuss The Ecological Thought. When I discovered OOO, right after it was published, it seemed so intuitively to fit with my sense of things.

Hi Tim.

On the subject of The Ecological Thought and your perspective more generally. Would you have something to say on your understanding of revolution at present. As you know I read your work as revolutionary because it is anarchist and anarchism is a revolutionary praxis but I am hoping that you may have something to add.

I guess I read you as being an environmentalist, contra Graham. Your work suggests that you're not a caricature of an environmentalist; not a sentimental environmentalist. The work contributes to the environmental task by complicating environmental thought. But you may already know this! Liam
