Das Werk diskutiert an den Themen Landschaft, Kunst, und öffentlicher Raum eine Neudefinition des Verhältnisses von Mensch und Natur gemäß der These des Anthropozän, nach der wir unseren Planeten und sein Ökosystem so irreversibel verändert haben, dass wir selbst zu einem geologischen Faktor geworden sind: Wir müssen nicht um unser Überleben in der Natur bangen, sondern auch um sie selbst, weil ja der Mensch die Natur mache.

Veränderung im Lauf der Zeit ist eine spezifische Kategorie der Landschaftsarchitektur bei ihrer Arbeit mit Freiräumen und organischen Materialien: Nachhaltigkeit, Identität, die Bewahrung und Entwicklung unserer natürlichen Umwelt und unseres gebauten Wohnumfeldes werden in und durch zeitliche Prozesse gestaltet. Was bedeutet dies für die konkrete Umsetzung in landschaftsarchitektonischen Konzepten und aktuellen Projekten? In Essays, Interviews und Darstellungen der besten realisierten Projekte aus den letzten Jahren nimmt Zeiträume eine Ortsbestimmung der Herausforderungen, Aufgaben und Leistungen der Landschaftsarchitektur vor. Das Buch erscheint anlässlich der Verleihung des Deutschen Landschaftsarchitektur-Preises im Jahr des 100-jährigen Bestehens des Bundes Deutscher Landschaftsarchitekten.

Our modern patterns of thinking and learning are all based on observing a world of 'things', which we think of as separate building blocks. This worldview allows us to count and measure objects without their having any innate value; it provides neat definitions and a sense of control over life. However, this approach also sets humans apart from each other, and from nature.In reality, in nature, everything is connected in a fluid, dynamic way. 'Separateness' is an illusion we have created -- and is fast becoming a dangerous delusion infecting how we relate to business, politi, and other key areas of our daily reality.Giles Hutchins argues that the source of our current social, economic and environmental issues springs from the misguided way we see and construct our world. With its roots in ancient wisdom, this insightful book sets out an accesssible, easy to follow exploration of the causes of our current crises, offering ways to rectify these issues at source and then pointing to a way ahead.

This book offers essays on both canonical and non-canonical German-language texts and films, advancing ecocritical models for German Studies, and introducing environmental issues in German literature and film to a broader audience. This volume contextualizes the broad-ranging topics and authors in terms of the Anthropocene, beginning with Goethe and the Romantics and extending into twenty-first-century literature and film. Addressing the growing need for environmental awareness in an international humanities curriculum, this book complements ecocritical analyses emerging from North American and British studies with a specifically German Studies perspective, opening the door to a transnational understanding of how the environment plays an integral role in cultural, political, and economic issues.

Is it time to embrace the so-called “Anthropocene”—the age of human dominion—and to abandon tried-and-true conservation tools such as parks and wilderness areas? Is the future of Earth to be fully domesticated, an engineered global garden managed by technocrats to serve humanity? The schism between advocates of rewilding and those who accept and even celebrate a “post-wild” world is arguably the hottest intellectual battle in contemporary conservation. In Keeping the Wild, a group of prominent scientists, writers, and conservation activists responds to the Anthropocene-boosters who claim that wild nature is no more (or in any case not much worth caring about), that human-caused extinction is acceptable, and that “novel ecosystems” are an adequate replacement for natural landscapes. With rhetorical fists swinging, the book’s contributors argue that these “new environmentalists” embody the hubris of the managerial mindset and offer a conservation strategy that will fail to protect life in all its buzzing, blossoming diversity. With essays from Eileen Crist, David Ehrenfeld, Dave Foreman, Lisi Krall, Harvey Locke, Curt Meine, Kathleen Dean Moore, Michael Soulé, Terry Tempest Williams and other leading thinkers, Keeping the Wild provides an introduction to this important debate, a critique of the Anthropocene boosters’ attack on traditional conservation, and unapologetic advocacy for wild nature.

The authors in this volume make a case for LTSER’s potential in providing insights, knowledge and experience necessary for a sustainability transition. This expertly edited selection of contributions from Europe and North America reviews the development of LTSER since its inception and assesses its current state, which has evolved to recognize the value of formulating solutions to the host of ecological threats we face. Through many case studies, this book gives the reader a greater sense of where we are and what still needs to be done to engage in and make meaning from long-term, place-based and cross-disciplinary engagements with socio-ecological systems.

The Anthropocene, in which humankind has become a geological force, is a major scientific proposal; but it also means that the conceptions of the natural and social worlds on which sociology, political science, history, law, economics and philosophy rest are called into question. The Anthropocene and the Global Environmental Crisis captures some of the radical new thinking prompted by the arrival of the Anthropocene and opens up the social sciences and humanities to the profound meaning of the new geological epoch, the ‘Age of Humans’. Drawing on the expertise of world-recognised scholars and thought-provoking intellectuals, the book explores the challenges and difficult questions posed by the convergence of geological and human history to the foundational ideas of modern social science. If in the Anthropocene humans have become a force of nature, changing the functioning of the Earth system as volcanism and glacial cycles do, then it means the end of the idea of nature as no more than the inert backdrop to the drama of human affairs. It means the end of the ‘social-only’ understanding of human history and agency. These pillars of modernity are now destabilised. The scale and pace of the shifts occurring on Earth are beyond human experience and expose the anachronisms of ‘Holocene thinking’. The book explores what kinds of narratives are emerging around the scientific idea of the new geological epoch, and what it means for the ‘politics of unsustainability’.

For over 20 years Berlin-based photographer and filmmaker Armin Linke (b. 1966) has been photographing the effects of globalization, the transformation of infrastructures and the networking of post-industrial society via digital information and communication technologies. Following his recent exhibition in Milan, this substantial publication features images selected by a variety of theorists and scientists chosen by Linke. The images selected by Israeli theorist, curator and filmmaker Ariella Azoulay, French sociologist and philosopher Bruno Latour, Austrian artist/curator/media theorist Peter Weibel, American architectural theorist Mark Wigley, and British geologist Jan Zalasiewicz open up Linkes work to a variety of new readings. Linkes photographs depict the modern world as a massive profusion of data, where the material infrastructures, consisting of computer centers, data highways and server rooms, are largely invisible. A research affiliate at the MIT Visual Arts Program, Linke has exhibited extensively worldwide including the Storefront, NY, and KW Berlin.
