Sample text

48 What kind of limit might be detected here? 49 Humans might be imagined as aerophiles, “air-­ lovers”: an extreme from the vantage point of anaerobes. The word “extreme” functions as a relativist, rather than totalizing, operator. What this accomplishes is attention to environment; the ends of this kind of biology are about ecological context—­and about displacing humans as the only ends of evolution. Such a view means to awaken humans to their superfluity to earthly life writ large and therefore to their responsibility for the effects of their anthropocentrism.

50 In these mentions, “life form” almost always is embedded in an account of descent with modification. 51 Prior to the publication of Darwin’s On the Origin of Species, allied terms circulated during Victorian arguments over the nature of geological and biological change, in which participants debated the merits of uniformitarianism, catastrophism, and transformism. 53 The capaciousness of “forms of life” served especially well those arguing for the possible limitless plenitude of living things and those speculating on processes that generated biological forms and their transmutations.

31 Lebensform does double duty here: it refers to amphibianness as a general category, but also points toward the relation of an organism to its environment. That relation—­ of habit, habitation, and medium to the poiesis of the organism—­becomes key to refinements of Lebensform, in which form is not simply a manifestation of an aesthetic impulse but takes shape with respect to material circumstances. The central figure here is the naturalist Alexander von Humboldt. Alexander von Humboldt was influenced by the scholarship of his older brother, Wilhelm, a philosopher close to Goethe and Schiller.
