In the Apocalypse, the chiliastic-eschatological meaning has been superimposed on the original literal meaning of dis-velation. A phenomenon, this one, seems to have favored the formation of neuralgic force fields between the end, the beginning, which in some way refer to each other, and precisely dis-velation. If the whole of history seems to be disseminated and sometimes informed by these fields, the Anthropocene temperament certainly does not seem to be an exception. The apocalyptic Anthropocene interstitial spaces are particularly crowded and lively and, among the many voices animating them, those of Serres, Latour, and the posthumanist perspective, to which the one and the other, so to speak, wink, are of particular interest. What the Serresian-Latourian posthuman apocalyptic Anthropocene force-field seems to be reviving is, so to speak, a new recognition of the already-since-ever-been, i.e. the recognition that the human has always been inchoative in and with the world in becoming in relationship, that the post has always been an engine, resistant to repetitiveness, obviousness and habit, that the new is this very recognition, and that the recognition of the already-since-ever-been is precisely action, dynamism, a process of construction (of human in and with the world).
