Initiated by ecocentrism, (eco-)feminism, science and technology studies as well as postmodern philosophy, the development of social theory during the last two decades has been marked by a critical investigation of central elements in modern thought, particularly into the nature/culture dichotomy and other associated distinctions. This paper introduces us to these debates and focuses particularly on arguments that reject essentialist understandings of nature. Following a proposal from Bruno Latour, the paper concludes by discussing a concept of the "articulation of the collective" that goes beyond the modern nature/culture dichotomy.

Since 1991, GAIA has offered a well-balanced and practice-oriented forum for transdisciplinary research. GAIA offers first-hand information on state of the art environmental research and on current solutions to environmental problems. Well-known editors, advisors, and authors work to ensure the high quality of the contributions found in GAIA and a unique transdisciplinary dialogue – in a comprehensible style.

    GAIA is an ISI-journal, listed in the Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Science Citation Index and in Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences.
