To show the strength and uniqueness of an ecosophical approach, we propose an interdisciplinary work between philosophy, ecology and design studies. To do so, our research develop the idea of recycling in its historical relations within the human cultures, settlements, life and existence. The hypothesis is that the study of the recycling semantic field (waste, obsolete, disuse, upcycle, etc.) in its different meanings, may help us to construct an important intellectual common ground for Anthropocene era debates. Discussing the complexities but also the opportunities of these ideas, our work tries to illuminate the importance of heading toward new movements, that may be able to transform the ecosystemic technicist visions into larger, and more ethical, ecosophical views.

  • The half-yearly journal Global Environment: A Journal of History and Natural and Social Sciences acts as a forum and echo chamber for ongoing studies on the environment and world history, with special focus on modern and contemporary topics. Our intent is to gather and stimulate scholarship that, despite a diversity of approaches and themes, shares an environmental perspective on world history in its various facets, including economic development, social relations, production government, and international relations.
