Philosophy after Automation
Eduardo Viveiros de Castro, Yuk Hui
For a Strategic Primitivism
A Dialogue between Eduardo Viveiros de Castro and Yuk Hui
In this dialogue with Yuk Hui, Eduardo Viveiros de Castro discusses his work on the Amerindian perspectivism, multinaturalism; the relation between nature, culture and technics in his ethnographic studies; as well as the necessity of a non-anthropocentric definition of technology. He also discusses a haunting futurism of ecological crisis and automation of the Anthropocene, and explores a “strategic primitivism” as survival tool.
