Abstract

In the environmental field the traditional opposition between state and market has been gradually sidestepped by complex forms of intervention, where both terms change their meaning. A governmental perspective, rather than a governance one, is more useful in providing indications to understand the stakes of what appears to be a profound transformation in the way humans conceive the biophysical world and their relations with it, in which the hegemony of neoliberalism and its rationality of government play a crucial role. These processes challenge the conceptual equipment of the social sciences. The current ‘return’ to material reality does not necessarily lead to an adequately critical perspective.
