About this book

These essays collected in Second Nature, by both eminent and emerging scholars, engage interlocutors from Machiavelli to Arendt. Individually, they contribute compelling readings of important political thinkers and add fresh insights to debates in areas such as environmentalism and human rights. Together, Second Nature issues a call to think anew about nature, not only as a traditional concept that should be deconstructed or affirmed, but also as a site of human political activity and struggle worthy of sustained theoretical attention.

Contributors: Crina Archer, Jane Bennett, Ashley Biser, Christopher Buck, Laura Ephraim, Ayten Gundogdu, Bonnie Honig, Thomas Laqueur, Lida Maxwell, and Yves Winter
