cthulhu books

The relationship between human beings and nature is present in everyday life, narrated, mediated, and fictionalized through stories, tales, and myths that define how we inhabit the planet. Words, voices, images, and fiction shape how we relate to what we understand as natural. Cthulhu Books brings together reflections and worlds that derive from distinct perspectives, emerging new ways of talking about nature and suggesting malleable relationships between words and what they describe.

La condición postnatural
Glosario de ecologías para otros mundos

La condición postnatural is a speculative glossary of terms and images, of stories and subjects, an unfinished archive of intertwined thoughts that are born as an invitation to take a critical distance from the modern Western conception of the “natural” by proposing new gazes and resonances. To this end, this book tries to articulate and mix affective philosophies, minor anthropologies, critical historical reviews, minimal histories, narratives, and stories on the margins, counterexamples that proliferate a kaleidoscopic vision of ecology in an increasingly deteriorated world. This book challenges the hegemonic narratives around the natural, inviting us to imagine and propose other worlds to come from respect, empathy, and coexistence. In line with the methodologies and research processes of IPS, the book is understood as a collaborative project. Therefore, in La condición postnatural, includes and makes visible the projects and research of some of the people who have become part of the extended network of the Institute for Postnatural Studies.
