Earth Emotions, new words for a new world ~ by Glenn A Albrecht

Since my article published in Earthlines, Technofossils and Radionuclides, welcome to the Anthropocene,  I have been referencing the significant work of Australian philosopher, Professor Glenn Albrecht.

Glenn is renowned for his term Solastalgia, as reported before in the New York Times, now embeded in popular culture, for example, featured as the title of the fifth studio album by Australian singer-songwriter Missy Higgins.

In this podcast by Cornell University Press, Glenn talks to Jonathan Hall about his powerful new book, a lifetime of work on words and emotions, culminating in the most profound and hopeful message there is – The Symbiocene. Aside, I’m hugely honoured by the inclusion in the book of my own neologism Fluminism as a powerful form of love.

This is one of the most important life-ist books since Ben Okri’s The Famished Road Trilogy, Bill McKibben’s The End of Nature,  everything written by Vandana Shiva  (and, before that, Rachel Carsen’s Silent Spring and Aldo Leopold’s Sand County Almanac).


For Generation Symbiocene… please, do listen.
