Abstract

We urge degrowth proponents to do three things: distinguish socio-material topologies from size and shape, prioritise pluriversal differences over homogenising tendencies, and critically recognise obsessions of growth as situated within control-driven Modernities. If these crucial distinctions and connections are not made, degrowth can inadvertently re-enact the presumed superiority of Modern developments over alternative topologies of the pluriverse.
