Technosphere and Techno-Ecology
It is a profoundly human illusion to think that everything revolves around us human beings. And yet, it is difficult for us to think otherwise.

Haff and media theorist Erich Hörl.

Peter K. Haff is professor of geology and environmental engineering at the Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke University, Durham. Erich Hörl teaches at the Institut für Kultur und Ästhetik Digitaler Medien, Leuphana Universität, Lüneburg.
