This chapter introduces the focus of the book – the discussion of the Anthropocene through the lens of ethics and politics, with an emphasis on the question of space. The chapter explains the need for this emphasis: many of the issues concerning the Anthropocene revolve around questioning how space between the human sphere and the rest of the world is, or is not, shared––an ethical and political question in itself. Furthermore, the chapter suggests that existing ways of talking about the Anthropocene can be reimagined. It describes three core pillars for such alternative narratives: the generation of situated, in-depth knowledge, the recognition of non-Western knowledge and the entanglement of humans and more-than-humans. The outline of the book is based on these three pillars.
