Can we survive the end of our world? How could we deal with it? The book’s three authors explain the popular notion of “collapsology”, the study of the collapse of our industrial civilisation and what could succeed it. By defining its objective (learning to live with bad news and sudden and progressive changes in the environment), they propose a change in attitude and awareness of society in the face of the rapid destruction of fauna and flora, a snowball effect that could lead to the end of humanity. The book is an instruction manual that aims to be more realistic than alarmist. Far from cliché, it positions itself as an encouragement to recreate social cohesion. Is unity the key to surviving the end of our civilization?
