Andreas Weber is a biologist, philosopher, writer, who teaches at Leuphana University and at the University of Fine Arts, Berlin. His work is focusing on re-evaluation of our understanding of the living. He proposes understanding organisms as subjects and hence the biosphere as a meaning-creating and poetic reality. In his 2019 book Enlivenment. Toward a Poetics for the Anthropocene he presents an alternative understanding of our relationship with nature, arguing not that humans control nature but that humans and nature exist united in mutual transformation.
