Atlas de l'Anthropocène

Preface by Jan Zalasiewicz
Afterword by Bruno Latour
The Atlas of the Anthropocene
Preface by Jan Zalasiewicz, postface by Bruno Latour

« The mythological figure of Atlas represents a giant able to bear the weight of the Earth on his shoulders without it crushing him. But when, in 1538, Gérard Mercator published what he decided to call an Atlas, the power relation was completely inversed. An "Atlas" was a collection of maps, printed on paper, something that could be flipped through, something that a cartographer could hold in his hand. It was no longer the Earth carried on our back, with its weight bearing down upon us, but the Earth dominated by us, possessed and mastered by us. Nearly five hundred years later, the situation is once again inversed with the publication of an “Atlas” that allows readers to understand why it is completely futile to aim to dominate, master, or possess the Earth, and that the only result of this madness is the risk that we end up crushed by its unshoulderable weight.” Bruno Latour

Climate change, the collapse of biodiversity, demographic evolution, urbanization, atmospheric pollution, soil deterioration, natural disasters, industrial accidents, public health crises, social unrest and mobilization, international summits – this is the first atlas that brings together all the data available on the ecological crisis our world is facing.
