Book Review – “Being Ecological” Timothy Morton (2018)

Hmm… I was looking forward to this, but it was infuriating. The last chapter is ok, but the whole book, which is not very thick anyway, could have been reduced to an essay. The writing is so frustrating, repetitive, in need of serious editing… I know it’s philosophy but some of the sentences made zero sense. He also has a habit of inventing terms, that are basically just a word said twice – ‘stranger strange’, ‘truthy truth’, ‘expanded care, care with a care/less halo’. There is a serious lack of notes, the analogies often don’t work… Basically we are not separate from our world, we are part of it, don’t be scared by that, embrace it. I think. Thinky think.

Yes, yes, yes. This is a brilliant book – saddening, maddening and moving.
