While affirming their more-than-human concerns, Ruddick (2015) proposes that there are limits to the capacity of relational ontologies to deal with the conflicting demands and extensive temporalities of the Anthropocene crisis. This commentary probes her alternative notions of a forcefulness and generativity that exceeds individuated bodies and of a semiosis that inheres in the workings of ecological and Earth systems.
