Carbone joins a number of recent books attempting to consider the dif-ferent identities of the element. Dag Olav Hessen’s book The Many Lives of Carbon (2018) and Robert Hazen’s Symphony C (2019) are two exam-ples of the growing interest in recounting the history of carbon beyond the realm of chemistry. Like these accounts, in Carbone the substance is re-leased from its status as a chemical element and becomes a milestone of the anthroposphere and its relation to the Earth. Yet Loeve and Bensaude-Vincent seem to provide an even larger perspective, which draws inspira-tions from the history of science and technology, STS, cultural studies, and philosophy.

Abstract

Carbone joins a number of recent books attempting to consider the dif-ferent identities of the element. Dag Olav Hessen’s book The Many Lives of Carbon (2018) and Robert Hazen’s Symphony C (2019) are two exam-ples of the growing interest in recounting the history of carbon beyond the realm of chemistry. Like these accounts, in Carbone the substance is re-leased from its status as a chemical element and becomes a milestone of the anthroposphere and its relation to the Earth. Yet Loeve and Bensaude-Vincent seem to provide an even larger perspective, which draws inspira-tions from the history of science and technology, STS, cultural studies, and philosophy.
