Latour, Bruno, 2013 (February), “Facing Gaia, Six Lectures on the Political Theology of Nature” (Gifford Lectures)

In February 2013, Bruno Latour gave six Gifford Lectures on Natural Religion in Edinburgh under the title “Facing Gaia, Six Lectures on the Political Theology of Nature.”

* Lecture 1: ‘Once Out of Nature’ – natural religion as a pleonasm

* Lecture 2: A shift in agency – with apologies to David Hume

* Lecture 3: The puzzling face of a secular Gaia

* Lecture 4: The Anthropocene and the destruction of the image of the Globe

* Lecture 5: War of the Worlds: Humans against Earthbound

* Lecture 6: Inside the ‘planetary boundaries’: Gaia’s Estate

Those six lectures in ‘natural religion’ explore what it could mean to live at the epoch of the Anthropocene when what was until now a mere décor for human history is becoming the principal actor. They confront head on the controversial figure of Gaia, that is, the Earth understood not as system but as what has a history, what mobilizes everything in the same geostory. Gaia is not Nature, nor is it a deity. In order to face a secular Gaia, we need to extract ourselves from the amalgam of Religion and Nature. It is a new form of political power that has to be explored through a renewed attempt at political theology composed of those three concepts: demos, theos and nomos. It is only once the multiplicity of people in conflicts for the new geopolitics of the Anthropocene is recognized, that the ‘planetary boundaries’ might be recognized as political delineations and the question of peace addressed. Neither Nature nor Gods bring unity and peace. ‘The people of Gaia’, the Earthbound might be the ‘artisans of peace’.
