The Anthropocene Project. An Encyclopedia

Living, learning, absorbing knowledge, like nutrition, at school, in everyday life, in our dreams. But what happens with the personal, the knowledge rooted in the body of mind of an individual when it is transformed to signs and texts, textual or visual media, and generalized? Who defines knowledge? The facts, reproducibility? The intelligent, the good, the majority? Knowledge is shaped by the disciplines, scientific cultures, and their media, or by the social formation, but also the historical point in time in which it is produced. Knowledge production in the Anthropocene, however, must transgress the disciplinarity of the natural sciences and humanities, and wants to include pre-scientific ideas and non-institutionalized knowledge—does this make it monstrous, too complex, or plural? At least it seems to get a bit out of control, and that’s surely needed.
