Forget the Anthropocene, we live in the Capitalocene (Podcast with Jason W. Moore) - Circular Metabolism Podcast #56

📺 Welcome to the 56th episode of the Circular Metabolism Podcast: Forget the Anthropocene, we live in the Capitalocene with Prof. Jason W. Moore 📺.

🏙️ On today’s episode we will discuss about some more fundamental questions that are looking how capitalism and rationalism has altered our relationship with Nature, which in turn is responsible for current environmental crises. In other words we will look whether the duality of Nature and Society which we always use as a given to account for resource use and pollution emissions is actually one of the root causes for situation we’re in. We will question whether the right way to qualify the epoch we live in is Capitalocene instead of Anthropocene and finally we try to see together whether another socioecological future is foreseeable.

🎓 To talk about these big topics, I have Jason W. Moore. Jason is an environmental historian and historical geographer at Binghamton University, where he is professor of sociology. He is author of Capitalism in the Web of Life and editor of Anthropocene or Capitalocene? Nature, History, and the Crisis of Capitalism. His books and work are trying to make a synthesis of radical scholarship by looking at the long-term perspectives of Capitalism, Power and Nature. Finally, Jason coordinates the World-Ecology Research Network.
