After Fukushima: The Equivalence of Catastrophes

Jean-Luc Nancy


This book examines the nature of catastrophes in the era of globalization and technology. Can a catastrophe be an isolated occurrence? Is there such a thing as a “natural” catastrophe when all of our technologies nuclear energy, power supply, water supply are necessarily implicated, drawing together the biological, social, economic, and political? The book examines these questions and more. Included in this edition are two interviews.

Keywords: catastrophes, globalization, technology, nuclear energy, power supply, water supply, natural catastrophe
