This chapter takes issue with Slavoj Žižek’s announcement of the “death of ecology.” The “death of ecology” addresses the claim that there is a difference between culture and nature, comforting us with the idea that we can “fix” things by changing our actions so that they no longer harm nature. According to Žižek, human culture—including technology, pollution, and trash—is just as natural as anything else.

Keywords:   Slavoj Žižek, Culture, Nature, Possession, Human Role, Mutual Flourishing, Intelligence
