    The Ecophobia Hypothesis grows out of the sense that while the theory of biophilia has productively addressed ideal human affinities with nature, the capacity of "the biophilia hypothesis" as an explanatory model of human/environment relations is limited. The biophilia hypothesis cannot adequately account for the kinds of things that are going on in the world, things so extraordinary that we are increasingly coming to understand the current age as "the Anthropocene."The Ecophobia Hypothesis grows out of a dissatisfaction with the capacity of what has come to be termed "the biophilia hypothesis" to adequately account for the kinds of things that are going on in the world, things so extraordinary that we are increasingly coming to understand the current age as "the Anthropocene." Building on the usefulness of the biophilia hypothesis, this text argues that biophilia exists within a contexton a broader spectrum that has not been adequately theorized. The Ecophobia Hypothesis argues that in order to contextualize biophilia (literally, the "love of life") and the spectrum on which it sits, it is necessary to theorize how very un-philic human uses of the natural world are. This volume offers a rich tapestry of connected, comparative discussions about the new material turn and the urgent need to address the agency of genes, about the complexities of 21st - century representations of ecophobia, and about of how imagining terror inter-penetrates with the imagining of an increasingly oppositional natural environment. Furthermore, this book proposes that ecophobia is one root cause that explains why ecomedia-a veritably thriving industry-is having so little measurable impact in transforming our adaptive capacities. The ecophobia hypothesis offers an equation that determines the variable spectrums of the Anthropocene by measuring the ecophobic implications and inequalities of speciesism and the entanglement of environmental ethics with the writing of literary madness and pain. This work also investigates how current ecophobic perspectives systemically institutionalize the bases infrastructures of industrial agriculture and waste management. ,about This is a book about revealing ecophobia and prompting transformationalabout change.
