Modernity and life politics : conceptualizing the biodiversity crisis

Auteurs :
FLITNER, M.
HEINS, V.

Description :
The article examines the implicit boundary narratives of both modernization theory and of its counter-discourses and successors. Among the successors, special attention is given to the paradigm of reflexive modernization and its empirical corollary, the hypothesis of an emerging global agenda of life politics. It locates the biodiversity crisis within current controversies. It is suggested to trace the development of this policy area back to the early 20th century and to reread it in the light of different approaches toward modernization.
