Complexity Theory and Ecofeminism: Looking At a Coalition
AbstractComplexity theory may provide a helpful conceptual toolbox for understanding interpenetrated social and material systems of oppression as posited by ecofeminism; however, successful coalition demands careful consideration of the epistemic implication of complexity theory. Curdled logic can facilitate the epistemic move from monism to plurality that such a coalition would require. Résumé La théorie de la complexité offrirait une boîte à outils conceptuelle utile pour comprendre les systèmes sociaux et matériaux impénétrables de l'oppression tels que présentés par l'éco-féminisme; toutefois, une coalition fructueuse demande une considération de l'inclusion épistémique de la théorie de la complexité. La logique tordue peut faciliter le mouvement épistémique du monisme à la pluralité que ce genre de coalition demanderait.
