The Conservation Question

In this paper the idea of conservation is revisited through capturing the erstwhile pre-capitalist lifeworld of the Kāṇis of Shenduruney and Agastiya Malai regions of the southern Western Ghats within Kerala. The essence of conservation is traced through ecosophical meditations of Uexküll, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Deleuze and Guattari. We open up the thinking on conservation towards enhancement of ecology and propose minority politics which may de-singularise the ego-logical schizophrenia towards re-territorialisation of the eco-logical assemblage of human incorporeality.
