2015 (English)In: The Holocene, ISSN 0959-6836, E-ISSN 1477-0911, Vol. 25, no 10, 1721-1723 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The Special Issue provides a deep-time interdisciplinary perspective on the Anthropocene and signals the importance of the Anthropocene concept in past, present, and future human-environmental relationships. This concluding article recognizes that various approaches - scientific, postmodern, catastrophist, and ecomarxist - can contribute to understanding the Anthropocene as a process and that contributions have been made by several disciplines, including Anthropology, Archaeology, Geography, History, and Politics. The critical importance of weaving together social science perspectives with those of the natural sciences is emphasized.
