Fordham University Press

Habit rules our lives. And yet climate change and the catastrophic future it portends make it clear that we cannot go on like this. In a spirited defense of an enlightened anthropocentrism, Wood argues that to deserve the privileges of reason we must demonstrably deploy it through collective sustainable agency. Only in this way can we reinhabit the Earth.
