“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

Dark Ecology to be Published by Columbia

The Wellek Lectures get published by them, and the book got the university press style green light today. Awesome. I've been editing it a lot this last week, me and my excellent research assistant Mallory Pladus.

It's 55 000 words long, which makes it my shortest book by a long way.

We are going to try to put it out real fast. Every time I edit it gets a bit softer, more yin, less like a lecture. More readable.

I think I can put it through maybe five more edits in the intervening time.
