Revelations in the RubbishBook - 2016
People's notorious habits of disposal appear to have put them well on the way to making the earth inhospitable to life. But their relation to rejectamenta includes much more than shedding and tossing. This offers a portrait of the intimate ties people maintain with the dumped and discarded. Scavenging with abandon from sundry sources, including Veblen, Darwin, Freud, Plato, Buddha, Milton, and Locke, the book explores the extent to which people rely on trash and waste to make sense of their lives and to shape connections with others.
