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. Becoming human, claims Morton, actually means creating a network of kindness and solidarity with non-human beings, in the name of a broader understanding of reality that both includes and overcomes the notion of species. Negotiating the politics of humanity is the first and crucial step to reclaim the upper scales of ecological coexistence, and not to let Monsanto and cryogenically suspended billionaires define them and own them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I have been reading Timothy Morton's books for a while and I like them a lot."
--Bj rk

"Considered by many to be among the top philosophers in the world, especially among those tackling issues related to human effects on our environment, Morton herein provides an important, spirited, and sometimes frenetic analysis of the foundational assumptions of Marxism and other -isms with regard to nature and culture."
--Jeff Vandermeer, author of The Southern Reach trilogy, The Millions

"A very good introduction to what Theory (capital T) might have to say about climate change and species die-off."
--Ted Hamlton, Los Angeles Review of Books

"A great work of cognitive mapping, both exciting and useful."
--Kim Stanley Robinson, author of The Mars Trilogy (in praise of Hyperobjects)

"His book exemplifies the 'serious' humanities scholarship he makes a plea for. My head's still spinning."
--Noel Castree, Times Higher Education (in praise of The Ecological Thought)

"Sassy, brilliant, a genuine engagement with and of thought, this work tunes us to a thrilling, endorphinating way of thinking: my drug of choice."
--Avitall Ronell, New York University (in praise of Nothing: Three Inquiries in Buddhism)

"Timothy Morton is a master of philosophical enigma. In Dark Ecology, he treats us to an obscure ecognosis, the essentially unsolvable riddle of ecological being. Prepare to be endarkened!"
--Michael Marder, author of The Philosopher's Plant (in praise of Dark Ecology)

"A poetic tour de force that is both academically and philosophically rigorous."
--Steven Umbrello, Journal of Critical Realism
