2023. Urban Nature, Episode 5: Jason W. Moore and Gabriel Kozlowski (14 June). Audio.
In this episode of Urban Nature, Jason W. Moore and Gabriel Kozlowski discuss the concepts of nature, capitalism, and the web of life from the perspective of social construction, relations of power, and Modernity’s dualism. Moore argues that one of the most fundamental problems of Western civilization, both intellectually and politically, is the splitting between society and nature; that this binary is a form of violence that generates conditions of inequality and oppression while maintaining the hegemonic structures intact.
