This week’s social science quote is by Professor of Anthropology, Paul Stoller, who writes about anthropocene; how anthropology can rise to the “profoundly humanitarian obligation” to address inequality arising from human-caused climate change:
“Given the political, social and ecological crisis we face, anthropologists are uniquely positioned to demonstrate in clear and concise language and image, how market fundamentalism, which generates climate change, social inequality, racism and the defamation of difference, has brought us to the social precipice. By moving from passive to active voice anthropologists, among other cultural critics, can provide the insightful information needed to construct a groundswell of change -a course correction on a path to social apocalypse.”
