Abstract or Summary

Recent posthumanist critique of the Anthropocene’s metaphysical underpinnings are grounded in the same cultural trajectories that such critiques seek distance from. Eurocentric realist and new materialist approaches tend to rely on scientific objective knowledge, without acknowledging how such claims are themselves culturally produced. Existing Māori and Indigenous philosophies on the interrelated nature of the universe may however provide some critical insights into engaging with these Western cultural presuppositions.
