Professor Bruno Latour delivers the Gifford Lecture series entitled "Facing Gaia. A new enquiry into Natural Religion".
Lecture 4: The Anthropocene and the Destruction of the Image of the Globe
The paradox of what is called "globalization" is that there is no "global globe" to hold the multitude of concerns that have to be assembled to replace the "politics of nature" of former periods.

Recorded on Monday 25 February 2013 at St Cecilia's Hall, the University of Edinburgh.
