(p.134) Conclusion
Herodotus in the Anthropocene

Joel Alden Schlosser

University of Chicago Press

The conclusion returns to the broad questions raised by the Anthropocene and translates Herodotus's ancient vision of earthly flourishing to the twenty-first century. It does so by imagining new political institutions arising around the Mediterranean, inspired by movements like Lesvos Solidarity and responses to the migrant crisis. Herodotus himself was involved in the founding a new community in Thurii; this example and the political inquiry modeled by the Histories can inspire new foundings to respond to the dilemmas of the Anthropocene.
