dc.description.abstractCarolyn Merchant is celebrated for her insights into how the scientific revolution and the Enlightenment featured the control of nature, bringing "the death of nature." A once nurturing mother Earth, became inert and mechanical, manipulated by industry and agriculture. Strident recent environmentalists have been celebrating our entering the Anthropocene Epoch, boldly embracing perpetual enlargement of the bounds of the human empire. We are urged to become planetary managers, geo-engineers, rebuilding the Earth better to serve human needs. Is this a return to the death of nature? This analysis revisits Carolyn Merchant in the prospect of an Anthropocene Epoch.
