Stop Dead

William Ospina

NON FICTION. PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE, 2016. 53 PAGES.

Once it had been removed of its sacred status, humanity laid claim to nature. Before, men and the environment were one and the same; indivisible. Now they were separate with humanity assuming the role of lord and master.
From there, environmental disaster became inevitable: climate change, polluted oceans, lethal air and their associated apocalyptic consequences are the result of man's hubris.
William Ospina explores the history of ideas, religion, politics, the means of production, philosophy, art and literature to show how humanity's overweening arrogance has led us into a scenario in which a sharp change of course is required: the survival of the human race, and the planet, is at stake.
