The past was what caused humans to change and the advancement in science. Nonetheless, the results of the activities is worst and fear becomes perpetual. What has been done cannot be undone, it is already too late to fix the mistakes according to Latour. Human has interrupted nature causing a dismal
Did you know that being immortal isn’t actually as fun as it sounds and could endanger our planet by overpopulating it? Well now you do, overpopulation is an extremely dangerous problem that can affect future generations greatly. One of them obviously being running out of space. Reproducing and death are both the biggest factors of the human cycle, immortality would become a difficult challenge to overcome because it would interfere with the life cycle. We should not live forever because we would crowd our environment and it would be very costly.
Globalization and its impact over culture: the arena is converting at a quick pace. because the time passes, old thoughts and practices wind up observably stupid and new terms and contemplate show up. One such surprise that has astoundingly modified our life.Globalization is the development of inventory, things and commercial enterprise from the breaking factors of one state to the furthest reaches of some other country. it is the affiliation and consolidation of human beings, tradition, musings and social orders some of the nations of the world. Globalization isn 't a thorough new thought.
91) As a result, society battles to take a fair viewpoint on nature, as our understanding is constructed by existing cultural standards. Ultimately, by viewing humanity as the crux of existence, nature becomes merely a resource: ‘a raw material to be transformed into use-value for humanity’ (Connor 1996: 278). This hyperseraparation from nature poses a potential fatal outcome for the physical environment, as the ability to view ourselves as a part of ecosystems becomes damaged as we perceive the natural world as a disposable commodity, thus downplaying our understanding of how nature both sustains the environment and supports our lives. Therefore, this essay will draw on anthropocentrism and the dualistic nature between culture and nature binaries to comparatively analyse the excerpt from Consolations of the Forest (2013) by Sylvain Tesson and
We know that we are facing a global crisis today, not because of how ecosystems function but rather because of how our ethical systems function (Worter 27). Introduction A scrutiny of the world, in general, and the human habitat and the environment, in particular, reveals the magnitude of the threat that humanity faces, as all its activities to foster development in every possible area have started to boomerang in an alarming proportion.The prevailing ecological threats aggravate the complexity of the already complex modern life. Human beings are trapped in the vicious cycle of happenings like changes in the rainfall pattern, changes in the climatic condition, global warming, rise in the sea levels etc. on one side, and on the other, a series of catastrophes like earthquake, floods, droughts etc., which could be interpreted as nature’s reaction to humans’improper handling of it. Humans are the only species that do things not just to fulfil their need, but to satiate their greed.
The present-day world is prone to myriad atrocities like war, and terrorism. Environmental degradation is yet another burning transgression that remains dormant in the hidden pages of history. Though it is not an age old affair that seeks attention at the very minute, it is equally undeniable that only in the past few decades the need for restoring the harmony between nature and humans are paid heed. Ecocriticism, an emerging field in contemporary literary and cultural theory delineates the relationship between literature and environment in broader perspectives. Richard Kerridge rightly asserts that, “ecocriticism seeks to evaluate texts and ideas in terms of their coherence and usefulness as responses to environmental crisis” (5).
He conveyed to readers both the practical and theoretical and ways of approaching theory generation. Additionally, the author tried to bring to light on how sensitizing concepts provide starting point for building analysis of data to generate a grounded theory. As a research method, it’s appropriate for identifying and explaining phenomenon and social processes. The author clearly explains dynamics of theoretical framework in his study. This clearly gives the readers a line of reasoning and basis as to why we should move grounded theory further into postmodernism.
Sustainability: If you take a look around at what’s really happening in our world, there’s an inescapable pattern of ‘what’s going on is simply unsustainable’ and in other words, it can’t go on for much longer. Sustainability is to “meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. As cities began to grow with the population increase, the need for a sustainable development became more apparent as resources began to diminish in quantity and value. Left to it’s own devices, the Earth is a sustainable system. However, over the past two centuries, the accumulated impacts of one specific group of actors in that system, the humans, are now threatening the stability of the whole thing.
Based on that I believe that this issue need to be solved as soon as possible to improve our lives and in this work I will seek for potential solutions. The history of waste troubles Before starting dissections, we need to understand what waste is. From the dictionary.com, we can find that “waste” means useless consumption of something. The problem of waste pursues humanity since ancient times, but there are some differences. Our waste will remain in dumps for decades and centuries, intoxicating the earth, water and air due of the appearance of new materials.
Since the 60s, socio-political movements towards global issues (Death 2014, 62) have ceaselessly challenged the global political agenda. It is therefore extremely relevant to recognize, that not every country in the world have had a successful and fast economic growth, that every country has a different background, culture and history, also since capitalism has led to globalisation and industrialisation with a different rate. It is crucial to considerate socio-political differences, in order to solve global problems democratically, as one of the main purposes of democracy is undoubtedly to recognise this enormous spectre of differences. Contrarily to democracy, although, dictatorships and authoritarian regimes would certainly not be the rightful form of government able to solve global problems. These regimes are the right opposite to democracy: by violating human rights and abusing power, authoritarianism stands for inequality (Taylor 2014, 289).
