Nature, far from being a stable entity, is modified by each science and cultural breakthrough. This impermanency ultimately challenges our understanding of ourselves: From considering us at the center of the world, detached from that res-extensa that served as source of resources and backdrop of our evolving lives, to the present paradigm, where we have been thrown in a whirl of anthropogenic ecological crisis, our position in the cosmos has radically shifted decade after decade.
There’s many other ways of understanding our relation with nature and our position in the world: Amerindian indigenous cosmologies for example consider that humanity – and not nature – is the shared condition of everything: for them a tree is a human being with another shape, so it is a panther or a river or the rain… and since everything is human, everything can be a subject and has its own agency. Such conception transforms the world in a cosmopolitical arena, where “we” gains a radically different meaning.
