Watched again Donna Haraway on the "Anthropocene, Capitalocene, Chthulucene: Staying with the Trouble" in May 2014. A call for thinking—“Think We Must!” (Virginia Woolf)—that begins with the point that Arendt said Eichmann was incapable of a certain kind of thought, i.e she spoke about him of his “incapacity to think the ‘worlding’ in which one is engaged.” How to do such thinking today? Haraway’s three tools: the Anthropocene (i.e. humans burn fossils), the Capitalocene (i.e. trade is responsible), and the Chthulucene (endosymbiotic theory, the chthonic, the tentacular). Still pondering this last one.
