A radical call for solidarity between humans and non-humans

What is it that makes humans human? As science and technology challenge the boundaries between life and non-life, between organic and inorganic, this ancient question is more timely than ever. Acclaimed Object-Oriented philosopher Timothy Morton invites us to consider this philosophical issue as eminently political. In our relationship with non-humans, we decided the fate of our humanity.


“Drawing from the Buddhist understandings of emptiness and form, Morton develops a version of ‘object oriented ontology’ that seeks connection and particularity without essences, fully formed identities, or wholes.”

“I have been reading Timothy Morton’s books for a while and I like them a lot.”

“A great work of cognitive mapping, both exciting and useful.”

“His book exemplifies the ‘serious’ humanities scholarship he makes a plea for. My head’s still spinning.”

“A very good introduction to what Theory (capital T) might have to say about climate change and species die-off.”

“A poetic tour de force that is both academically and philosophically rigorous.”
