Example text

What does care do? What is care? With an instrument you do the same exercise every day; that doesn’t look like particle physics. That is one reason why people—and I don’t mean the people who are paid by the oil industry and coal industries, I’m not talking about those guys—are surprised, disappointed, worried that after the twentieth-century achievements of big science and basic science, science has “regressed” to model building (which they often see as an inferior science), to natural history, and to care.

But, the point of view of bleak optimism is actually a view from nowhere. I don’t think we require a scenario of disappearance. I think that’s a mistake, because futures are multiple and there are many ways in which humans will cope. The question is what politics anticipate the catastrophe sufficiently so that these futures stay open. And that is, of course, one of the reasons why so many people, like Isabelle Stengers, are worried about the word Anthropocene—because its political acumen will make it disappear very quickly.

Because of the Anthropocene situation there are lots of connections that were superficial before, where people would say “yes, it’s nice to have a link between artists and scientists, they are creative,” but now these are more directly connected. 4 And it was clearly not at all the sort of discussion I organized maybe thirty years ago in San Diego, where you would have had artists capturing some sort of aesthetic aspect of science. Here, we are talking about the common articulation of the Anthropocene.
