Sex and the (Anthropocene) City

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

9 Scopus citations


In this essay I explore three concepts: sex, the city, and the Anthropocene. I argue that the condition for the possibility of the city is the assemblage of sexual drives for the sake of relative stability, but that those same drives also exceed the city's self-preservative function. Further, I argue that the very conditions that further the city and that enable philosophical and scientific concepts to be formed (and that allow for the Anthropocene to be discerned as an epoch) rely upon a geological politics that enables new ways of thinking about what counts as the political as such.
