Co-Creating Commons with Earth Others: Decolonizing the Mastery of Nature
- Author(s): Apffel-Marglin, Frédérique
- et al.
In this article, I examine the onto-epistemological process of colonization that has led to the industrial revolution and the western modern way of exploiting an insentient, inert and mechanical nature. I propose that it is only through a non-anthropocentric, non-hierarchical, and reciprocal co-animation between humans and earth others that we can decolonize the master’s story of nature (as well as of society) and thus be able to create true commons.
