Audio of Professor Jason W. Moore's talk at the 2021 Real Abstraction web conference, hosted by Foreign Objekt.

In this talk, Jason W. Moore argues that Man and Nature, operationalized through successive Christianizing, Civilizing, and Developmentalist Projects, are ruling abstractions constitutive of the capitalist world-ecology. In this light, Man and Nature are not only fundamental epistemological categories, but also instruments of bourgeois hegemony on a world-scale. (Hence, successive world hegemonies shape and are shaped by successive Civilizing Projects, with distinctive renderings of Man and Nature.) In this light, civilizational fetishism, embodying an ethos of planetary management, appears as the logical and historical precondition for commodity fetishism, not least through the Naturalization of imperialism, racism, and sexism, beginning in the long sixteenth century. Giving special attention to the post-1968 New Environmental Imaginary, Moore shows how the ruling abstraction Nature has been pivotal to the success of neoliberal rule and the climate crisis.

There are 6 versions of this talk on the R4A server. Versions 1 - 4 are the full talk (01:33:27), lightly edited for pacing and content, mostly removal of "um, uh, you know" and false starts. I didn't add my own intro/outro to any of these.

Conrad Hamilton's introduction (Versions 1 - 4) is at times a bit distorted, but still easily understandable.

Versions 5 & 6 are 58 minute radio-ready edits, with my intro and outro.

Version 1: A -24 LUFS Mp3 optimized for RADIO PLAY. Contains 4 potentially offensive words (38:18 shit; 55:19 fucked; 55:22 fucked; 55:27 fucked).

Version 2: Same as Version 1, but with the 4 words silenced.

Version 3: A -19 LUFS Mp3 optimized for downloading onto a computer or mobile device for INDIVIDUAL USE. Identical content to Version 1, but a louder file encoded at a lower bitrate so it takes up less storage space.

Version 4: A -19 LUFS Mp3 optimized for downloading onto a computer or mobile device for INDIVIDUAL USE, but with 4 words silenced.

Version 5: A 58 minute -24 LUFS radio-ready edit, with my intro and outro. Omits the Q&A; otherwise lightly edited to fit in a 58 minute timeslot. Contains 4 potentially offensive words (32:25 shit; 48:46 fucked; 48:49 fucked; 48:55 fucked).

Version 6: Identical to Version 5, except the 4 potentially offensive words have been silenced.

Would you like to:

1. Download all or part of the Essential Dissent archive in a few clicks via OneDrive?

2. Access my audio in .wav format, which is the highest quality and preferred if you do your own edits for later conversion to a different format?

3. Download episodes that have disappeared from R4A?

4. Access extras such as conference journals which give more detailed information about the presenters, panels and sponsoring organizations?

5. Continue doing all of the above even if R4A becomes defunct?

Send an email to wvought at gmail dot com, requesting the archive link. Include Essential Dissent Archive in the subject line.

If you’re affiliated with a radio station, please tell me your radio station’s call letters and the name of your show. If you’re a podcaster, please tell me the name of your podcast. And if you’re an end user who just wants to stream or download some interesting audio, that’s cool too.

The link will give you access to the Essential Dissent archive (including all subsequent episodes) for as long as the archive is available on OneDrive. (If I ever have reason to move the archive I'll send you the new link.)

A big advantage of this system is that if R4A ever stops working or vanishes altogether, I’ll still be able to post new episodes to the archive, and you’ll still be able to download them. In that case I'll send a notification when I post a new episode (but you can opt out of receiving notifications at any time).

You are welcome to share the link with others, but since I will then not have their email address they will not receive notifications, nor will I be able to send them a new link should that become necessary. It’s best to have them contact me to be added to my email list.

No spam, no fee, no BS, and I’ll remove your email address from my list upon request.
