Catherine Malabou opens Before Tomorrow (2014) with a striking yet seemingly simple question: ‘Why has the question of time lost its status as the leading question of philosophy?’ At one time, once upon a time, time led the way to the meaning of being, so why has no one ‘taken up the problem by trying to develop afresh a decisive concept of temporality?’ And, more, why does no one even ask this question anymore?

At the dawn of ‘ecocriticism’ as a discipline of study within the Humanities, Glotfelty and Fromm (1996), in the first general reader in the matter, defined it as the critical practice that examines the relationship between literary and cultural studies and the natural world. In general terms, during the past two decades, ecocriticism has denounced the anthropocentric and instrumental appropriation of nature that has for so long legitimized human exploitation of the nonhuman world.
