Resumo

Climate change is currently the greatest challenge facing humanity. The Mushroom at the End of the World recognizes that living today is living with the reality of an altered natural system, increasingly unrecognizable and unpredictable, largely due to deregulated Human action, with emphasis on the beginning of Industrialization that altered the way we conceive the world and how society is organized. From this process, caused by the disruption and disconnection between the environment and the community, throughout the development of modernity and modern thought, come the concepts of mechanization and individualization of being. Tsing proposes a reassessment of current capitalist thinking, through a historical and personal contextualization of the now and the after. The aftermath of ecological and societal ruin. Offering, through mushrooms that thrive with, and in adversity, perspective and hope on how we can make progress in a landscape of devastation and ruin.
