“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

Congratulations Bryan Wallis

You got yourself a PhD my man!

Two in a week! Yes!

Bryan has recovered Wendell Berry for ecocriticism and ecological philosophy. In these times when space is supposed to win and we are all supposed to be cosmopolitan, it's fantastic to see someone really powerfully arguing for the ontological primacy of place.

That's a big argument in Dark Ecology by the way.

Bryan is hot to trot, hiring people!
