pg 92. the ant's struggle

"The ant produces parasites in eliminating others." pg 92

In this section Serres is describing this battle we have to eliminate rabbits from gardens, or the aunt to eliminate the grasshopper. I am starting to see parallels to what Patrick has been mentioning in class about the evolution in philosophy, were Serres is trying to say that we cannot separate ourselves from nature.

This attitude that man is not nature, has placed us in a situation were we are fighting off these things, that just leads to more problems or don't go away at all.

We no longer deal with the rabbits eating our cabbage, but we now deal with computers that dot function.

One is not better or worst, they are the same. A different system but still a system.
