Grey Ecology Julian Reid Professor of International Politics University of Lapland Finland Dictionary Entry for The Virilio Dictionary Edinburgh University Press 2012 Grey Ecology is best understood as Virilio’s alternative to Green Ecology. Green Ecology refers to the sciences and movements oriented around the problem of the pollution of natural environments on which living organisms rely for their wellbeing. Grey Ecology is concerned with the pollution of the self-created environment of the specifically human organism, its cosmos and culture, without which humans are no longer human.

Flag as Inappropriate. The "war was his university". Paul Virilio was born in Paris in 1932 to an Italian communist father and a catholic Breton mother. He grew up in the northern coastal French region of Brittany. The Second World War made a big impression on him as the city of Nantes fell victim to the German Blitzkrieg, became a port for the German navy and was bombarded by British and American planes. After training at the Ecole des Metiers d' Art, Virilio specialised in stained-glass artwork, and worked alongside Henri Matisse in churches in Paris.

Here as Virilio states, "all one can do is guess." But Virilio's position is not one of pure guessery. His extrapolationist position against his delirium state, has the architecture of a 23rd century scientist: three parts - fractal geometry, two parts - theory of general relativity, one part - Philip K. Dick. One must step back and stare down the medusa of progress with a mirror. This is Virilio's call for a grey ecology.

Having worked through nearly all of Virilio's work before approaching this text, I find that it is here in the course of a seminar at EGS where he provides the key to understanding his project. For it is a singular project that stretches across his entire oeuvre. Here he draws the lines between his and Baudrillard's approaches, and how in spite of disagreeing with each other the same motivational spirit guided both. Specifically, Virilio responds to those who call him negative and would demand an answer to the problems without fully understanding the significance of the question. It is not an apocalyptic call in the sense of an ending, Virilio explains it as apocalyptic in the sense of a revelation; that is, a revelatory project of finitude. The problem is how to establish finitude when the foundation has collapsed into the instant.

Overall a wonderful text, supplemented by several scholar's responses and the French transcript of the event for those who like to compare the language used.

Grey Ecology is likely to engage readers interested in Virilio's later work in philosophy, technology, and aesthetics along with those who are more generally interested in seeing the tracks of an important mind in process. The book is nicely augmented by a series of response essays which direct Virilio's ideas onto what is often new theoretical ground; these essays are stimulating and easily stand on their own but their inclusion here is a real value.
