El gráfico es una versión en español del que ilustra el texto de Steve y Lydia Pyne, titulado THE LAST LOST WORLD, Ice Ages, Humans Origins, and the Invention of the Pleistocene.

Este gráfico resume en forma muy condensada el sentido del libro. Una combinación de historia, epistemología y estudios de ciencia, en torno a la geología y los hielos.

El pleistoceno es una de las cuatro eras geológicas definida por los hielos: Precámbrico (800 a 600 millones de años atrás), Ordoviciano-Silúrico (460 a 420 millones de años),  Permo-Carbonífero (320 a 250 millones atrás) y Pleistoceno, que podría considerarse moderna, hace unos 2 a 3 millones de años (p. 20)

Cerrado el libro, terminamos pensando que la cuestión es si aún vivimos en el Pleistoceno o ya definitivamente estamos en Antropoceno.  Lo cual amenaza a la disolución al Holoceno, época que cada vez se acorta más velozmente, para ubicarse como un período armado por algunos H. sapiens, para darle un mayor realce a su transformación sedentaria y agrícola.

Padre e hija escriben  algo que no es una empresa familiar, sino el encuentro de dos investigadores de estilo propio, que escriben una obra nueva, original, indispensable, asimilable nos parece tan sólo al modo Deleuze-Guattari de crear.

Los autores pasan de la evidencia empírica a la historia de las ciencias y de las ideas, sin dejarnos tomar aliento, como si todos fueran objetos u objekt, como explícitamente proponen, siguiendo a Cassirer (p. 250)

Geología, hielo, fuego, genética, multiplicidad de los erectinos, los homos y la historia contemporánea impregnando cada ciencia. Un libro maravilloso, una guía para comprender el Antropoceno y la geología, un gesto de apertura del paraguas.

 

 

 

Un comentario en “THE LAST LOST WORLD”

  1. Hey there, I just found your site, quick question…

    My name’s Eric, I found humus-editores.cl after doing a quick search – you showed up near the top of the rankings, so whatever you’re doing for SEO, looks like it’s working well.

    So here’s my question – what happens AFTER someone lands on your site? Anything?

    Research tells us at least 70% of the people who find your site, after a quick once-over, they disappear… forever.

    That means that all the work and effort you put into getting them to show up, goes down the tubes.

    Why would you want all that good work – and the great site you’ve built – go to waste?

    Because the odds are they’ll just skip over calling or even grabbing their phone, leaving you high and dry.

    But here’s a thought… what if you could make it super-simple for someone to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket?

    You can – thanks to revolutionary new software that can literally make that first call happen NOW.
