Abstract

A new materialist perspective on the movie “Interstellar”. Specifically a focus on the plans made in the movie in order to save humanity. My argument is that if we change humanity’s perspective on the subject position of planet earth from being an object, to a subject we will treat it more ethically. The desire behind this move is to preserve humanity, which I argue is consubstantial of earth and language.
