Summary/Abstract: Marzec analyses the phenomenon of non-humans disappearing in black boxes (Bruno Latour), withdrawing into handiness (Martin Heidegger/Graham Harman) and their dissolving in Nature (Timothy Morton). Looking for the cause for the catastrophic distinction between humans and non-humans, Marzec finds answers in Morton’s philosophical tools. A key reason the distinction between humans and non-humans is the transition from the gathering and hunting collective to the agricultural community – a transition that gives rise to agrilogistics or thinking about non-humans in terms of resources or private property. Marzec explores the notion of ecology without the notion of Nature and uses Morton’s concept of dark ecology to outline the possibilities of another community in solidarity with non-humans.
