Although they are often spoken of in the same breath, theories of the Anthropocene and the nonhuman turn vary in their emphases. The Anthropocene introduces a new ‘universal’ subject – the human species as a global geophysical agent. Theories of the nonhuman, however, seek to displace anthropocentric foci – the ‘human’ is viewed as a part of a complex assemblage co-constituted by many others. Postcolonial theory has, in general, been sceptical of both trajectories. On the one hand, postcolonial theory and theorists remain generally suspicious of the putative universal subject (the ‘human species’) that purportedly impacts this era of anthropogenic climate-change catastrophically.

What is love? Why is it so important in our lives? And why should we think about it? The subject of love is of enormous importance to our daily lives, as love sustains us and gives meaning to existence. Yet, love seems to be a theme that is underdeveloped in contemporary research. Whatever the reason for that is, love remains one of the central concepts in the history of Western thought. Not only does philosophy literally mean “love for wisdom,” but the discussion of the theme of love has been part philosophy’s inheritance since the time of Plato’s Symposium.
