The weather world of human experience

Vincent Colapietro

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


I consider Chauncey Wright's metaphor of the universe as so much "cosmic weather" and then Tim Ingold's characterization of the terrestrial zone (or medium) of human existence taking shape as a "weather world." I also attempt to connect the metaphor at the root of Wright's cosmology with the nuanced account of the weather world (especially as a medium and "meshwork") at the center of Ingold's anthropology. The upshot is a thoroughly pragmatic understanding of the lifeworld of human beings.
