"I know Rousselle for years as a very serious theoretician, but now he did something quite unexpected: he collected in a single volume his transcribed live interventions. The effect is nothing less than miraculous: a flow of engaged thinking, an often polemical dialogue, to be read coldly like one reads pure theory. Eternal thought, its deepest insights, transpire in the dynamic of intellectual life and its struggles. Green life and grey theory are thus no longer opposed: theory itself becomes green, part of life. A book that will not just teach you a lot – you will literally enjoy it! "
