9780415102841: Ecopolitics: The Environment in Poststructuralist Thought (Opening Out: Feminism for Today)

Ecopolitics is a study of environmental awareness - or non-awareness - in contemporary French theory. Arguing that it is now impossible not to think in an ecological way, Verena Andermatt Conley traces the roots of today's concern for the environment back to the intellectual climate of the late 50s and 60s.
The author considers key texts by influential figures such as Michael Serres, Paul Virilio, Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Michel de Certeau, Hélène Cixous and Luce Irigaray. Ecopolitics rehabilitates some ecological components of French intellectual thought of the past thirty years, and reassesses French poststructural thinkers who explicitly deal with ecology in their work.

From the Back Cover:

Rethinking the conditions of life, space and the state of the world figured prominently in the events of 1968, yet little attention is now being paid to ecological themes that arose in this influential period. Ecopolitics reassesses awareness - or non-awareness - of ecological issues in the work of key French poststructural thinkers and others affected by these events. Pointing first to some currently disparaging critiques of ecology in the work of Luc Ferry and Jean Baudrillard, Ecopolitics then returns to Claude Levi-Strauss' critical reading of Sartre, which led the way towards ecological thinking in contemporary theory. Through a reading of key texts by Bateson Serres, Prigogine and Stergers, Virilio, Guattari, Cixous, Irigaray and others, Ecopolitics illustrates how by means of reassessing nature and questioning technologies, a shift away from humanism has played a key role in shaping ecological thought. Ecopolitics will appeal to students concerned with the environment and those engaged in gender and cultural studies.

Review:

"This is a book to read and reread. For not only are the insights of the author herself highly valuable . . . she also conveys, in an exciting way, and from an ecological perspective, some of the most important ideas of such thinkers as Deleuze, Guattari, Serres, Cixous and Irigaray.."
"A worthy read."
-"Political Geography
"Verena Andermatt Conley demonstrates that ecological thinking was an extremely important element in the formation of poststructuralism and she thus powerfully reorients our understanding of that innovative generation of French thought. Moreover the ecopolitics that emerge from her readings is innovative and refreshingly different from the various strands of ecological thought dominant in the Anglophone world today."
-Michael Hardt, Duke University
..."the attention Conley draws to the geophilosophical basis of Deleuze and Guattari's thought...is the most important feature of her book... So what ecopolitics must do, and what this book does very well, is initiate a new dialectic, one that balances capitalism and the environment, without allowing the priority generally afforded humans to dictate terms..."Ecopolitics: The Environment in Poststructuralist Thought is undoubtedly deserving of a broad readership."
-"Ian Buchanan, University of Tasmania
