Sample text

As Eiseley writes, from the closing years of the eighteenth century there was growing awareness that “the past life of the earth . . might offer marvels no living eye had beheld. . ”12 Deep time, a succession of worlds in former ages, extinct species, missing links: these, then, were the principal ingredients of the labors of loss in Science in the Service of Loss 21 which paleo-scientists participated over the course of the nineteenth century. Their disciplines—natural history, geology, paleogeography, prehistory, and ethnology—as these were then practiced, were premised on a sense of loss, acutely concerned as these were with recovering and restoring, if only to human knowledge, that which had vanished into deep time.

Yet this reckoning, based on Biblical chronology, was soon at odds with the nascent science of geology, which was fast revealing that the earth’s surface had undergone vast transformations at a rate that could not be accommodated within such a short time span. Beginning with the Comte de Buffon, who estimated the age of the world to be around 75,000 years in 1774, many scientists progressively jettisoned the Christian calendar in favor of a new secular chronology in which the birth of Earth as a functioning planet was pushed further and further back in time.

62 How do we handle those forms of spatial labors in modernity—such as those around Lemuria—which carry traces of the precolonial, the non-modern, and the non-metropolitan? This is also why I deploy the category of the fabulous. I do so to bring back into theoretical play those imaginations about space and place that have been rejected by the sciences of the metropolitan modern as fantastic. I do so to expose the potential of such fantastic geographies—Conrad’s Geography Fabulous— to destabilize the knowledge-empires of these sciences, even as I explore the inherent limitations of their transgressions and disruptions.
