There's an air that hovers over the twenty-first century, an air that foretells of an forthcoming
ecological disaster. protecting practices reminiscent of recycling, and the promoting of the
responsible utilization of typical assets, support to sluggish the destruction of the earth, yet they don't remedy its drawing close destruction. they don't indicate of the matter, in the direction of an international free of ecological difficulties. This thesis makes an attempt to indicate outwards, in the direction of a special dating among nature and humanity that hopes to respond to the ontological query, “how can we resolve the matter of ecological difficulties? ” With Karl Marx we discover that this query will be replied by way of the humanity that overturns capitalism. accordingly, in Marx’s early writings we discover an outline of communism, of a society that has conquer the domination and alienation complicit with the capitalist financial system. the following, nature is affirmed concomitantly with humanity. now not alienated from the character from which it got here, humanity extends itself to nature unobstructedly. From this intimate relation to nature, humanity is in a privileged place to save lots of the character that's essential to store itself. the rest of this thesis will interact the severe theories of Theodor Adorno and Ernst Bloch, and the phenomenology of Merleau-Ponty, for you to enhance a suggestion of the way we flow in the direction of the actualization of this dream of Marx: the co-affirmation of nature and humanity. during this thesis i am hoping to teach that neither severe conception nor phenomenology is progressive by itself yet that those traditions needs to be introduced jointly in an effort to have interaction old materialism with the embodied subjectivities that
will function innovative topics.
