Human-Thing-World: A long road to the Anthropocene

Mankind and its imprint on nature

Human activity is and has been a decisive factor in history. For centuries, human beings have been influencing and changing our environment, above all through the things that we use and invent. Climate change, overexploitation of resources and environmental damage – but also resilience – are not exclusively modern phenomena. Did the Anthropocene begin much earlier or is it really just a diagnosis of the current crisis?
