Storyboard Text

  • When I think of frontiers, the first thing that comes to mind is John Locke and his Second Treatise of Government. One of the arguments he made there is that land that is not plowed or cultivated is essentially wasted. That it is the calling of human beings to cultivate the land and extract its resources. In addition, once a person cultivates a piece of land, he has the right to claim it as his property. As you can imagine, his writing has be quite consequential about the way we have been thinking about land and nature ever since. Although Tsing does not mention Locke directly in her discussion of frontiers, the reference is - in many ways - still there. 
  • John Locke 29 August 1632 – 28 October 1704, was a British philosopher and one of the most influential thinkers of the Enlightenment.
