Title: Revisió literària del concepte d’antropocè: una perspectiva posthumanista
Author: Gómez González, José Manuel

Abstract: This work explores the deployment of the concept of Anthropocene by part of the literary narrative of dehumanization and destruction, a literature that provides us with different perspectives on climate change, or other impacts of human action, and its implications for humanity and the planet. These literatures raise awareness of the ecological, social and cultural dimensions of the challenges we face, which is confluent with Sloterdijk's thinking when he posits the need to abandon the word humanism from a perspective that treats man as a problem. The literary narrative analysed relates the age of great transformations with strong environmental repercussions and a trail of destruction greater than that of previous times, but, as we will see, it also approaches dehumanisation and the difficult relationship with the environment from different perspectives. In order to deploy the literary analysis of the Anthropocene, we start from a post-humanist and post-anthropocentric approach, according to which it is necessary to overcome the dual confrontation of the human being with the nature surrounding it as opposing forces (nature/culture – human/non-human). This research seeks to establish how the narrative of the Anthropocene is represented in the chosen literary texts and what conclusions can be drawn to advance a new worldview that abandons anthropocentrism and creates a scenario of overcoming the consequences of the age of destruction as well as González-Ruibal has defined it.
