Abstract

In responding to Castree’s argument that geographers can and should encourage the production of a wider set of knowledges within the Anthropo(s)cene communities, I suggest such a process needs to: first, recognize the multiplicity of the Anthropo(s)cene scientifically, politically and ethically; and second, actively participate in the politics of the Anthropo(s)cene by providing positive friction. This concurs with much of Castree’s article and emphasizes the necessity of recognizing the intertwined science–politics of the Anthropo(s)cenes, the importance of asking awkward historical questions and the value of foregrounding debates about the future lives we wish to lead and planet we wish to inhabit.
