Book Review: Dark Ecology

Dark Ecology: For a Logic of Future Coexistence by Timothy Morton

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


Gibberish. The book is a stack of loose connections that never get paid off. Morton invents more complex phrasings for concepts that already exist (spare me the “hyperobjects”, everything an English professor is going to grapple with exists in discernible units of time) then relay-races back and forth between them in an effort to make an argument, such as it is, look less like a collection of Burning Mad doodle book scratchings.

It’s an emperor’s new clothes situation, and has little to do with either ecology or darkness. Skip it.
