Philosophy’s Jeremy Bendik-Keymer writes book on anthroponomy

Jeremy Bendik-Keymer, the Elmer G. Beamer-Hubert H. Schneider Professor in Ethics and associate professor of philosophy, recently had a book published titled Involving Anthroponomy in the Anthropocene. 

The book introduces the idea of anthroponomy—the organization of humankind to support autonomous life—as a response to the problems of today’s purported “Anthropocene” age. Bendik-Keymer focuses on anti-imperial work, which involves cracking open the common sense of a world that supports colonization. 

Involving Anthroponomy in the Anthropocene is written in a novel style, and contributes to the fields of Anthropocene studies, environmental studies, decolonial studies and social philosophy.
