Heideggerian Ecofeminism


  • Trish Glazebrook Washington State University




The first paper I published on ecofeminism was an analysis of Heidegger’s treatment of nature in his critique of science and technology (Glazebrook 2001). Now, almost two decades later, I continue to write as a Heideggerian ecofeminist on gender and climate change, especially adaptation and finance, with respect to African food security as well as on indigenous eco-defenders and -protectors, environmental justice, and sustainability with focus on the function of capital in the phallic order that is currently engineering mass extinction. In this chapter, I will trace the emergence and development of critiques of capital throughout this body of ecofeminist work and connect it with more recent research on Heidegger and economics.
