21st century update to Guy Debord's Society Of Spectacle. Sepulveda is a Chilean anarchist with connections in Eugene, Oregon, Spain and Italy, particularly among the so-called neo-primitivist and green anarchist communities. The Garden Of Peculiarities is his first work to be translated into English and is considered by John Zerzan, Derrick Jensen and other major anarchist thinkers to be the primary 21st century anarchist essay, in the way that Guy Debord's Society of the Spectacle situationist essay influenced 60s political thought. Written in a brief, pointed and thoughtful way this treaty describes the deficiencies of post-industrial culture and its best human and plant-centred alternatives.
Jesus Sepulveda was born in 1967 and has been widely published in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and other languages. His publications include Lugar de Origen, Reinos del Principe de Caido and Hotel Marconi. Dr. Sepulveda is also an accredited academic who teaches Roman languages in Chile and at the University of Oregon.
