2019-04-17 - Bridging global environmental sciences and anthropology of nature:
Anthropology of nature developed by Philippe Descola constitutes a very stimulating approach of the relationships between human and their environment that overcomes the so-called universal (modern) division between nature and culture. Philippe Descola will show how in lot of societies humans twine social relationships with plants, animals and environment and by doing so compose a common world between humans and non-humans. We will examine, with him, in what extend a such approach can help scientists to renew their representations of nature and society to better address the Earth system disequilibrium of Anthropocene that humankind has to face.
