Abstract

Scientists believe we are entering a new geological epoch called the Anthropocene. In the Anthropocene, humans have become a force of nature, essentially dislodging the harmony of the Earth’s intertwined system that has hitherto prevailed in the relatively stable Holocene epoch. While its existence has yet to be formally confirmed, the Anthropocene as a trope undoubtedly already confront environmental law scholars with unique challenges concerning the need to critically question, and ultimately to re-imagine, those methodological and scholarly foundations, perspectives and approaches related to the discipline of environmental law.
