Erich Hörl, James Burton (eds.): General Ecology: The New Ecological Paradigm, 2017
Introduces the project of general ecology.
"The concept of ecology finally allies itself with the new materialisms that are struggling, at the heart of this contemporary fascination, to articulate a non-modern ontology and epistemology. All of this is taking place in the wake of the theories of ecologization that have proliferated since the 1970s, and which have come to include the mind, perception, or the psycho-social, thus testifying to this transformation of the sense of ecology from an early stage. In other words, it is as if the comprehensive redescription of all modes of existence, which has been ongoing for a while now, were contracting around the concept of ecology, a concept that has itself begun to move. This effort, therefore, ultimately turns out to be a general ecologization of thinking and of theory, a development to which the new historical semantics of ecology testifies."
