THE GEOLOGICAL EPOCH

A crucial part of Wolfgang Paalen´s complex and multilayered legacy is his concept about a geological epoch as necessity for the persistence of the livelihood on the planet earth. His ideas to this theme are to be found in different essays and are centered around his concern to replace the anthropocentrical attitude of the human mind with a geological in which all human interests are thought and realized in line and conciliation with the needs and concerns of the earth itself.
