The Philosophy of Geoengineering

Geoengineering can be understood as the fulfillment of the entire technological project, because, in geoengineering, the Earth as a whole is represented as an object available for human regulation. The thinking that gives rise to geoengineering is the same thinking that first creates the world as an object suitable for technological manipulation.  A contribution to symposium held at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, Mainz, Germany, 14-16 May, 2012
