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.

You can use it to download all or part of the R4A Essential Dissent archive (in at least .wav format) via my OneDrive account, and I plan to continue to post new episodes to that account even if R4A at some point becomes non-functional.
