polis: a collective blog about cities worldwide

Featured Quote: Marie-Eve Morin

"As we are now faced with environmental crises, it becomes obvious that our unilateral polluting actions are being recoupled with their effects. As our management and regulation of the atmosphere is now part of our social and political concerns, the atmosphere can no longer be seen as an exterior but has effectively been integrated within the system of human relations."

Marie-Eve Morin, from "Cohabitating in the globalised world: Peter Sloterdijk’s global foams and Bruno Latour’s cosmopolitics," in Environment and Planning D: Society and Space, 2009
