Zegt Bruno Latour, copypasted uit de PDF:

First, we are no longer at a safe distance from any of the effects of
the “forces of nature”; second we are told by many scientific disciplines that
we have become so big, so cumbersome, that we
,
as humans
,
are now
of
a size
com
mensurable
with
volcanoes and
,
some say
,
with
plate tectonics; as to the
immense grandeur of our morality,
alas,
we seem so dejected, so puny
,
that
we have not the slightest idea of how to respond to the new situation.
The
task
of work
for the humanities i
s even more immense given that we have no
political idea of
what constitutes
the “we” endowed with the ability to
respond to
such a major transformation.
Time indeed to “measure
ourselves
.

Exit the feeling of the sublime. What’s next?
The successor of the
sublime is under
construction.
