Environmental issues: relational ontologies and hybrid politics
Neil Smith (1996: 49) has argued that we urgently need a new 'political theory of nature' that can reconceptualize the means and ends of politics in an increasingly hybrid world. In this report, I scrutinize recent attempts in human geography and cognate fields to construct an 'amodern' political vocabulary. Since these attempts are underpinned by relational ontologies, I also examine the work of those who are seeking to recognize 'society' and 'environment' in non-dualistic ways.
