From Staicy Alaimo, Exposed (p8)

"Jeffrey Jerome Cohen posits a relation between theories of material agency and activism: “Agency is distributed among multifarious relations and not necessarily knowable in advance: actions that unfold along the grid surprise and then confound. This agentism is a form of activism: only in admitting that the inhuman is not ours to control, possesses desires and even will, can we apprehend the environment disanthropocentrically, in a teetering mode that renders human centrality a problem rather than a starting point.”
