'The relevance of cutting edge social theory to resolving the environmental crisis is often far from obvious. Luigi Pellizzoni brings welcome clarity to the often opaque world of post-humanism, new materialism and the ontological turn while providing an unusually sophisticated analysis of how we humans are transforming nature. There is a lot in this book to think about. It is worth reading at least twice.' - Stewart Lockie, James Cook University, Australia 'Excellent, erudite speculative philosophy, insightful commentary on the works of Adorno, Heidegger, Foucault, etc. Most originally, it convincingly demonstrates the emergence of mastery-of-nature culture 2.0 for human enhancement, whereby the risks and uncertainties of manipulating nature's dynamics are not ignored, nor feared, nor even managed, but instead exuberantly ridden, for better or for worse.' Raymond Murphy, University of Ottawa, Canada 'Ontological Politics in a Disposable World provides a rich and nuanced account of how society, scientific knowledge, and nature are being transformed in neoliberal times.' - Charles Thorpe, University of California, San Diego, USA
'This is an exciting book, thick, dense, supported by solid arguments and political passion. It is particularly useful for those engaging with the semiotics of the ontological turn. It can hopefully contribute to fostering a necessary debate on the explicit and implicit relationships between the politics of the ontological turn and neoliberalism.' - Andrea Ghelfi, Environmental Values
