In campo scientifico la nozione di Antropocene ha dato luogo talvolta a un acceso dibattito. Questo volume prova a discutere come questo concetto apra delle prospettive anche nella ricerca antropologica per la comprensione delle dinamiche di mutamento sociale e ambientale in corso. Il testo propone anche una ricerca su una zona umida racchiusa all’interno del polo urbano della Sardegna meridionale. In questo caso l’autore ha cercato di mettere alla prova un concetto cardine dell’Antropocene: la società industriale come forza geologica di trasformazione. Il libro si sofferma anche su una interpretazione antropologica dell’immaginario della fine del mondo nella produzione culturale contemporanea. Il volume, insomma, propone un approccio problematico e aperto in cui nei processi di mutamento il rapporto tra la dimensione sociale e quella ambientale è molto stretto, tanto da richiedere, probabilmente, una altrettanto stretta collaborazione tra le scienze sociali e le scienze naturali. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… In science, the notion of Anthropocene has sometimes given rise to heated debate. This volume tries to discuss how this concept opens perspectives also in anthropological research for the understanding of the dynamics of social and environmental change in progress. The text also proposes a research on a wetland enclosed within the urban pole of southern Sardinia. In this case, the author tried to test a key concept of the Anthropocene: industrial society as a geological force of transformation. The book also focuses on an anthropological interpretation of the imaginary of the end of the world in contemporary cultural production. In short, the volume proposes a problematic and open approach in which the relationship between the social and environmental dimensions in the processes of change is very close, so much so that it probably requires an equally close collaboration between the social sciences and the natural sciences.]
